Don't miss the first kickoff for the Dixon High School football season tonight at the DHS stadium. Junior Varsity game begins at 5:30 p.m., and Varsity at 7:30 against McClatchy High. Weather will be beautiful, so grab a green and black sweatshirt and your cheering voice for this season opener.
"We have some great players with lots of potential," says team parent Sandy Watkins, "senior running back Korey Hall is looking to exceed last years rushing yards. The rams also have a big strong and athletic line in seniors Josh Watkins, Nico Bedoya and John Eldridge. Along with that we have Junior quarterback, Nolan Williams, who had a great season last year and juniors Jackson Bird, Sean Haney and Kyle Riley making an impact as well."
Watkins reports both teams had a great scrimmage at Woodland Christian, and showed much promise in the scrimmage against Woodlands Pioneer last Friday and they are looking forward to a great, exciting season ahead.
DHS football is starting off the season with a new and fresh coaching staff, after last year's controversial coach dismissal; Coach Besseghin and Coach Gomez have a positive forward moving attitude for the 2012-13 season.
