If Aaron Bates can be an emergency quarterback, Dana Dixon will do just fine as a last-second punter. For Detroit Renaissance, the 2009 MSU commit does it all. The athlete will bring tremendous versatility to the Spartans, an asset that helps teams build the kind of depth required of elite programs.
Dana Dixon does many things on the football field. Earlier this season, the 2009 Michigan State verbal commit punted, defended, caught and threw for Detroit Renaissance in an early season matchup.
The Phoenix lost a pivotal game to Mumford, but Dixon did his best in whatever capacity his team needed him.
A likely cornerback in college, what's perhaps most striking about Dixon is his excellent make up speed on the field, especially after taking a poor angle. A player may over-pursue from time to time, but how he recovers is what really matters.
