One in state running back is excited about the news of Arkansas State getting a new head football coach, especially with it being Arkansas native Gus Malzahn.
Malzahn, who coached in the state of Arkansas for 14 years, winning two state championships and helping Auburn more recently to win a National Championship.
"I haven't talk to him yet, but I'm looking forward to getting to know him," Dixon said. "It was a big hire for Arkansas State."
Would Dixon listen if Malzahn comes calling?
"Yes I probably would" Dixon admitted. "I would definitely take an official visit there."
Dixon is a 5-foot-11, 205-pound athlete that is rated by Scout.com as a two star prospect.
