Dixon Prepares for his Date in Starkville

Antwon Dixon is a name most high school football fans are familiar with. The Dixon family has been a big part of a resurgence in Terry High School football. Antwon, the second of four sons, made his decision to follow older brother Anthony to Mississippi State. Antwon will take his official visit to the Mississippi State campus this weekend.

Antwon has made several trips to Starkville the past few years, but this weekend he will be an honored quest.

"I am really looking forward to meeting some of the other football players and getting to know some of the recruits," said Dixon. "I got to meet some of them this year at the games, but this will be a chance for us to spend some time together."

Antwon was unable to make the trip last year when Anthony made his official visit to Mississippi State. This time around the whole Dixon entourage will attend.

"We're supposed to get there I think at two on Friday," said Antwon. "My mom and both of my brothers are going with me."

Now that high school football is behind him, Dixon has had the chance to reflect on the things that he needs to improve upon before he takes on opponents at the next level.

"I think I am going to have to be more aggressive when I play college ball," said Dixon. "I plan on getting in better shape and getting ready to play."
