The following information was revealed during our interview with Anthony Dixon:
How did your
game against Lawrence County go on Friday? "We won 30-23. I had 198 rushing
yards and 4 TD's."
What does that bring your record to? "We are
7 - 1. Our only loss on the season is to Brookhaven. We tried to come back, but
we made too many mistakes early on in the game. It was just too much to overcome."
your stay at Terry; what is the deepest your team has made into the playoffs?
"We got in the 1st round and lost to West Jones last year. That was our first
appearance in like 10 years."
Talk about your two little brothers?
"Rashun Dixon is my youngest. He is about 6' 2", 200 and he plays WR
and OLB for us. He is going to be better than me, no question. The little man
is so tough and fast. Rashun has it all. Antwan Dixon is a junior. He is also
about 6' 2", 200. Antwan plays WR and FS for us. He is the fastest out of
us. Antwan is also the smartest. Both of them were doing really good earlier on
in the season, but then they both got hurt and have been bothered by injuries
lately. They are both great players though."
Did you get a chance
to take the ACT test on Saturday? "Yes sir. I felt good about it. Hopefully
I passed the Math part so I do not have to take it anymore. I made a 17 on it
the first time. That is all I need if I have a 2.5 GPA. Right now, I am not quite
up to a 2.5 (GPA), but I will be there by the end of the year. But, I am not going
to count on that, so I am shooting for an 18 on the ACT test. I want to be safe."
you been to any college games recently? "I went to LSU after I got through
with the (ACT) test on Saturday."
How did it go? "It went real
good. I liked it down there. The players were real good. Everything more than
met my expectations. The stadium was the best one I have been to yet."
you stay overnight or did you come back after the game? "I drove back home
after the game."
Which college game will you attend next? "I
am not sure. I know I am probably going to the Ole Miss/LSU game, but I do not
know about the others."
Have you had a chance to set up your official
visits? "I have three of them so far. I am going to Ole Miss on December
2, Alabama on January 20, and MSU on January 27. I have been talking to the LSU
coach this week about getting my date set with them. But for now, I just have
Who else is in the running for your 5th visit? "I
am thinking about USM or Auburn. I do not know. It is going to be a toss up. I
really like Coaches Bowers and Hopson. I have developed a very tight relationship
with those two. I would hate to not at least visit them, but I do not know, I
like Auburn a lot too."
Who is coming after you the hardest? "I
think probably Ole Miss and MSU. They probably want me the most and USM. Alabama
and LSU are stressing to me that they really want me too, but I would have to
say that Ole Miss and MSU want me the most."
What will be the factors
in your decision? "I will probably look at the players and see how they interact
with each other. I just want to be around a big family. I like most of my coaches,
so that is really not a factor."
