A utility nicknamed "Black Jack", Dorgan spent three weeks in the Demons senior side during 1949 after previously winning the Seconds Best and Fairest.

He appeared at Richmond pre-season training in 1950 but was not recruited and instead joined Williamstown. Dorgan then played for Echuca in 1951 and 1952, before moving to Echuca East as player/coach in 1953. He won a flag in his first season there and remained with the club through 1954. After his playing career, he continued to volunteer for Echuca and was made a life member in 1998.

His brother Jim played for South Melbourne, and another brother Frank appeared in the Melbourne Seconds.
