Travis Dixon is one of the top 15 players in Arizona, and the 6-foot-2, 185-pound quarterback might still be looking for his first scholarship offer, but he also knows they’re bound to come.
Especially now that Dixon is better than he was last year.
“I have more confidence in myself,” Dixon, who threw for 1,888 yards and 24 touchdowns as a junior, said. “That’s the main thing for me – having more confidence. As the year moved on, I felt more comfortable out there, and it’s carried over to this year. I understand the system better, and I’m learning new things that coach (John) Wrenn wants me to.”
Dixon will get to test that improved confidence here this weekend against Mountain View. And he hopes that a strong performance will lead to heavier attention from the college coaches.
“I’d like UofA to call me,” Dixon said. “They called me first last May, and I would still be interested in them, even though they got a quarterback. I’m also hoping to hear from Notre Dame and Oregon State, too.”
Dixon knows that the phone will ring off the hook if he can replicate and improve on what he did last year, and it all starts this week.
