My homie is a GA high school football junkie from Peach County and he says he saw Dixon compete in the state playoffs this year and says we got a "HELLUVA" back. In fact, his words were that he was a "man amongst boys" in the playoffs and that in spite of the small classification of his school that Dixon could have played at ANY level of high school ball in GA and would have been a beast. So maybe he'll transition to LB or maybe he'll work out at RB. We'll see.
I wouldn't question his speed. He's plenty fast enough. We did our homework.
6'3 230 is crazy
His running mechanics need some work but speed is not his problem but running HIGH is especially at this level . If he ever learns how to make a smaller package and to run behind is pads at the point of contact he should be ok . But there's one thing I would not do is to move him to LB ; not just yet at least. Also can he catch th the ball or block ? At first look I saw a LB because the Kid knows how to sort his way through the chaos to find the Lane to the Ball (that is something that takes time to teach) kid move like it is natural it's a toss up whatever gets him on the field the fastest.
Grimsley High School senior outside linebacker, Sincere Burnette is hoping to get a scholarship, but he needs one more year to prove he's worthy of one.
GREENSBORO, N.C. — Grimsley High School outside linebacker, Sincere Burnette needs one more season to play. He'll be a senior this fall.
“My college decision weighs on what I do this year on the field," Burnette said.
Burnette said he's a different player than he was in the 2019 season. After the Whirlies lost to East Forsyth before the State Championship, he said it gave Burnette motivation to be better.
“If you look at my junior film, I’m not the same player I was last year," Burnette said. I’ve gotten taller, faster, gotten better with my technique.”
He's hoping this season will help him get a college scholarship from a Division I school, but first, he needs a season.
“I train a lot, but showing it on the field is more important," Burnette said.
The 2020 season is on standby and workouts for Guilford County continue to be pushed back. Guildford County athletes were supposed to start summer workouts Monday, August 3rd, but the county decided to delay it. It's not the first delay Burnette has experienced.
“It kind of messes with you mentally," Burnette said. "For a while, I lost hope. It's very disheartening. It makes you feel some kind of way. I have a lot of hope coming up."
He hopes he gets a chance to play. If he does and if he gets his dream scholarship, he said it would mean everything.
“I’m taking it," Burnette said.
Burnette said he has been playing football since he was 5-year-old and hopes to continue playing at the college level.
