The junior is coming off a season where he rushed for almost 900 yards on just 95 carries. A threat to take it to the house every time, the 5-foot-10, 170 pound back recorded six touchdowns for the Colts.
"We lost Matt and Luke (Joeckel who committed to A&M), but I think we are still going to be pretty good. We have a couple guys returning on the offensive line, Miles (Onyegbule, Texas commitment) went to quarterback and he is learning pretty fast. Overall I think we are going to have a pretty good defense as well, they new, but they are picking it up fast."
With Onyegble not quite as big of a threat to pass as Joeckel, the Arlington offense should be a little more balanced this season.
"The offense at this point is a little more even. It could change when we hit the field, but it's pretty 50/50," said Dickerson. "I didn't think to myself that I would have to step up, but the team in general would....One goal I set this season was to not get hurt. I have been banged up after every season. Another goal was to have a 1000 yards this season."
Earlier this summer, the junior hit up the Texas and Houston camp. A trip to Austin proved beneficial for Dickerson.
"It was pretty good. I learned a lot there. I knew how to hold the ball, but there is a certain way they taught us how to hold it, so you can always learn something new. Footwork was a big issue for me and they really helped me out with it as well," said Dickerson. "I would be really excited if Texas offered someday. I know for them to, I would have to work my butt off. But, it's exciting to think about."
So what is the Arlington product looking for in a school?
"I want to be a lawyer, so I'm looking for a great a academic school that has a nice pre-law program. I also want a place where I know that I will fit in and have a chance to play. Not necessarily start, but play."
