My name is Da'Shawn Dixon and I attend Benjamin E. Mays High School in Atlanta, Georgia. The position I play is middle linebacker or outside linebacker, although I am open to switch to SS or FS or whatever position I'm needed at in college. I have a 3.1 GPA, run a 4.8 in the 40 yard dash, and weigh 185lbs. Playing football in college is a goal I expect to achieve. Failure is something I cannot stand. Many guys say they're driven, but fact of the matter is few are willing to do what others won't in order to accomplish what others can't. My current goals, as I am back in my off-season routine, are to continue to add mass and get faster. I will be working to get playing time as a freshman anywhere I go. I would like to go to a school with a great atmosphere where i can find balance between the class and the field. I take all opportunities and love to show up on the big stage. I am open to different types of schools, although I would prefer one with a stable hierarchy of coaches and courses in which I can major in political science. An environment in which I could learn from others and make an impact as soon as possible would be great. I will absolutely look through all opportunities even though higher echelon schools are preferred.
