Read on to get to know Clearwater (Fla) Countryside standout cornerback Alex Dixon…
Alex Dixon is a 6-foot-1 and 180-pound cornerback for Clearwater (Flor.) Countryside. Countryside is out on spring break this week and the football players hope to hear soon who their next head coach is going to be. "We have it this week coming up," Dixon said. "I am just going to be hanging out. We might be starting spring football in the next couple of weeks once we find a new head coach. "Our head coach just left and went over to Clearwater Central Catholic. He said that he always wanted to go back to "C.C." and I think that money came into play. We did well last year. We played better than what people predicted." Dixon said that despite not having a head coach right now that he has been keeping busy. He wants to improve his footwork as a cornerback because he can really take away receivers with his frame. "I have been working with my footwork. I am just trying to get better, keep improving and get better in my game. I am really focusing on the classroom too. "My footwork was already good, but I am a big cornerback and I present match up problems for receivers because I am bigger. I just need to work on my footwork a bit more." Dixon is currently sitting on three written offers, but is claiming that he has a long list of schools that have said to him that they have offered. Dixon just hasn't received their offer in writing. Dixon also has a solid top two. "I still have written offers from Florida State, West Virginia and South Florida. I do have a lot of verbal offers like from Notre Dame, Auburn, North Carolina, Michigan and Clemson. "I haven't received written offers from those schools, but they did verbal. Right now I like West Virginia and Florida State because they were my very first offers. I have had them since September 1. I respect that." When Dixon is evaluating a school he is looking at some very particular things. One thing that doesn't factor into his decision at all is location. He just wants to play big-time football. "I am looking at the program, the academics and I don't really care about the location of the school. I just want to play really big-time football and I don't care where that is. I am also looking at coaching style." One school that might offer Dixon here in the coming weeks is Nebraska. Dixon is team mates with current Nebraska commitment, Tyler Moore, and the two of them are headed up to Nebraska's spring game. "I am heading up to Nebraska for their spring game with Tyler Moore. I started getting interest from Nebraska before Tyler committed to them. Coach Bo Pelini came and saw me and I heard he liked me. "I have heard that Nebraska was close to offering me too, but the coach from Nebraska told me to come to Nebraska, check it out and see what I thought. I am looking forward to going with Tyler." Moore has been trying to prepare Dixon for what he is about to see in Lincoln. Dixon has heard from Moore that when he gets up to Lincoln that he should expect to have Nebraska at the top of his list. "Tyler told me that I will really like it at Nebraska. He said that I will put them at the top of my list after the trip and to get ready for a good trip. If they offered me I would definitely be interested. They are a big-time program." --------------------------------------- Think you have read it all? Don't even think about it, because there is a lot more to check out on the RED ZONE.
