Adam Dixon: 'I'm A Playmaker'
Dixon is currently being recruited by (Assistant Head Coach) Brent Pease. "I've been in contact with Coach Pease and Coach (Viliami) Tuivai too," he said. "Coach Pease is a real down to earth guy. Drisan James played for Boise State and he's my friend. I go train with him a bit. He told me it's a real nice place to go to."
The standout CB is hoping to take a visit and see what the program has to offer. "Boise State is an up and coming program," Dixon said. "I'd like to get out there during the season and visit them. They also have good major programs."
Many schools want to see Dixon (5'10, 180, 4.39) in action this upcoming season before extending an offer. "All schools want to see a few games," he said. "Boise State, Cal, Colorado, and Arizona State want to see a few games during my senior year."
Arizona State is Dixon's hometown favorite and he has been hearing from them quite often. "I speak to Coach Erickson once a week," Dixon said. "He's always talking about academics and told me to keep working hard."
Last season, Chavez finished the season with a 7-4 record. It was quite a turnaround given that the program finished with a 3-7 record in 2007. Oddly enough, the Chavez Champions hope to be just that in 2009. "We want to go further than the first round this year," he said. "I want to be the best player I can be and help my team win a championship. I'm going to work hard in the classroom too," he added.
In 2008, Adam was a force in the defensive secondary and on special teams. "I had 67 tackles, 4 punt blocks, a kick return for a TD, and 6 pass deflections," he said. "I'm a playmaker," he added.
Chavez hopes to jumpstart a "championship" run this Friday as they open the season against Mesa.
