The recruitment of four star quarterback Dennis Dixon (6-4, 180, 4.5) from San Leandro, Calif., has had more ups and downs than a roller coaster. Earlier in the month two of Dixon’s favorite schools told him that they will not recruit him anymore. Those two schools were UCLA and USC.
For most youngsters this would be devastating, but Dixon isn’t like most youngsters. Some people are just born with a winner’s attitude. Dixon is one of them, on and off the field.
On the field Dixon has only lost three high school football games his entire career, all of them to Concord (Calif.) De la Salle. For the uninitiated De la Salle has won 138 straight games. No harm in that.
