Athlete of the Week - Quillin Dixon


Jefferson senior Quillin Dixon is our new WREX Athlete of the Week.

Dixon joined the J-Hawks boys basketball 1,000-point club this week during the Jefferson MLK Holiday Tournament. Jefferson currently leads the NIC-10 boys basketball standings heading into the heart of the conference schedule.

"I never imagined thinking that, since I achieved it, it's a great thing to achieve," Dixon said on reaching the millennium scoring milestone. "I came here expecting to win, and doing what I have to do to win."

"He'd be the first one to tell you it's nice getting 1,000 points, but his biggest goal is for our team to be successful," says J-Hawks head coach Todd Brannan.
