Dixon Sliding Through the Cracks?

Dixon Sliding Through the Cracks?

You always have football players that slide through the cracks and end up becoming stars on the next level. Is Cory Dixon one of those in 2014? His coach thinks so...

Cory Dixon is a 6-foot-4, 180 pound quarterback out of Brunswick, Ga. and he has an offer from Arkansas State, but should he have more?

His coach feels he should.

"I really don't know what is going on right now," said Brunswick head coach Victor Floyd. "Cory is very talented and he can throw the ball, run the ball, and ,he is not getting the attention he deserves."

Coach Floyd has a hard time figuring out why his star quarterback is not drawing more interest.

"He seems to be on down the list for some schools and he is No. 2 for a few schools, but each has a quarterback already committed.

"I would put Cory up against any of them out there. I see him play and it is hard to figure out. I know what he can do and I see it, so I feel like others would see the same thing. I just think it is a shame that he is not drawing more interest."

Other than Arkansas State, Lafayette and Middle Tennessee have their eye on the 6-foot-4, 180 pound senior.

Dixon is taking it all in stride and just doing the best he can on the field.

"I am not worrying too much about recruiting right now. I am not sure how it will work out, but I am sure it will," Dixon said.

"I am just going out and playing hard each game right now. We are trying to win games at Brunswick and that is what I am focusing on."

Like Floyd said, Dixon can both throw and run as a quarterback and Dixon likes to do each.

"I love when a play breaks down so I can get outside the pocket and make something happen. I feel I have a good arm and that I can hurt defenses with my legs too. I just look to make plays."

The Pirates leader hopes this fall will be the time things get going for Dixon.

"I know we are on the coast and do not get a lot of traffic like we would if we were in Atlanta, but Dixon is good," said Floyd.

"If he was at a school in Atlanta, he would have a lot of offers right now. Schools just have to see him, have to get a look at him, and they will like him."
