Today, The Citadel gained a great wide receiver and defensive back. Rustburg’s Avery Dixon signed with The Citadel on a full scholarship on National Signing Day. 

Avery Dixon has been playing football since he was 5 years old. He started off playing for Concord Indians. When he was old enough, he started playing for Rustburg High School where he has made an impact on both sides of the ball.

“I have been working on this my whole life,” Dixon said. ”This is a dream come true,” he added. “I chose The Citadel because it’s a brotherhood, not just a college.”

Dixon’s high school coach, Burt Torrance, explained that this is either the 5th or 6th opportunity for a football player from Rustburg to attend college on a full-ride athletic scholarship. 

Avery Dixon will graduate from Rustburg June 2022.
