Dixons wish comes true in signing with Patriots
FMU has been dream school for CHS guard
BROOKE DIXON SIGNED a National Letter of Intent to continue her academic and basketball-playing pursuits at Francis Marion University. She is flanked by her parents, Elizabeth and Stacey Dixon. Looking on from behind, from left, are Camden High School athletic director Jimmy Neal, CHS girls basketball head coach Natalie Jeffcoat and CHS principal Dan Matthews.
Talking to Brooke Dixon, you get the feeling that no matter what school at which level recruited her or, offered her a chance to play for their program, that she was going to hold out as long as she could for her dream school. So, while playing on the summer travel circuit last season, when Francis Marion University started showing plenty of interest in the rising senior at Camden High School, Dixon was ready, willing and able to listen to anything which the Patriot coaching staff had to say to her. And when the offer came Dixon’s way to join the FMU program, the 5-foot-8, two-way guard jumped at the chance.
