The following information was revealed during our interview with Ricky Dixon:
Have you started
to receive your awards yet? "I was named Offensive Player of the Year by
the Times Picayune. I was also named MVP for District 6(5A). I also got
All-Metro, and I made the Blue Chip Team."
What were your stats for
the season? "I think I had 23 catches for almost 400 yards and 13 TD's. I
also rushed for 800 yards, and I passed for 1, 200 yards and 12 TD's. I only played
QB for the last seven games. I played WR for the first three games."
you had any phone calls since the dead period ended? "They have been calling
my cell phone non stop since Sunday. Ole Miss came by the crib last night."
came from Ole Miss? "Coaches Orgeron and Wilson."
What did they
have to say? "We just talked about how life would be if I went there. I have
known Coach Wilson since he was at O. Perry Walker, so we just kind of kicked
it and talked about the boys. I do not know. It was no pressure or anything like
that. That is what I like about Ole Miss. They do not pressure me into anything.
We have a relationship outside of football."
Anymore coaches expected
in your house this week? "The LSU coaches are coming by on Thursday, I think."
you lined up the rest of your official visits? "I am going to MSU (1/13),
LSU (1/20), and I went to Ole Miss back in December (12/3)."
coming after you the hardest? "LSU and Ole Miss. Both of them are pretty
much equal. Those are my top schools."
What will be the main factors
in your decision? "I do not know. Just where I have a chance to play the
most, and who I feel the most comfortable around."
When did MSU start
calling? "They came to the school. They have been talking to me. We talked
about the visit at school right before the Christmas break."
is the number one thing you like about LSU right now? "It is so close to
home. I am familiar with a lot of their players. That is the advantage they have
over everybody else. It is only 30 minutes from home."
How are your
academics coming around? "I am waiting on my results from the last ACT test.
My GPA should be at a 2.5. I am taking a lot of core classes next semester. I
should get it up to a 2.7 by the time I graduate. I am retaking two classes that
I made a C in right now. I am doing good. I should be fine."
