Dixon Returns To The Storm

Dixon Returns To The Storm

The Storm thought they had their starting quarterback position filled with Martevious Young returning. That is until a man that led them to back to back titles in 2011 and 12 called and asked to finish his career in Sioux Falls.

The Storm announced today that Chris Dixon would be rejoining the team after spending last season in the AFL. Dixon wants to finish his degree at Augustana and his career under his mentor coach Riggs.

"Chris and I have kept in close contact as he was going through his ups and downs of the Arena Football League, we would talk about everyday. We have a very close relationship and that is one of the things that led to him wanting to settle in Sioux Falls and finish out his career here," Storm Head Coach Kurtiss Riggs said.

His career in Sioux Falls was brilliant. He racked up just under 7,500 yards and 167 touchdowns through the air, while rushing for almost 1,500 yards and 57 scores on the ground. Add that to their already high powered offense and Sioux Falls may be hoisting their fourth consecutive United Bowl Cup.

"We will go back to more of the offense we ran when Chris was here before. Last year we were a little more run game oriented. We still have a dynamic back in Tory Harrison and that is something we still want to keep involved in the offense. We will stretch the field a bit more than we did last year," Riggs said.

If he has half of what he left with in the tank he will be a great addition. Dixon has won five indoor titles and three Most Valuable Player awards. So is he still the same electrifying player?

"He's a little bit faster, but you will see a lot of the same things. I think the one year of arena football seasoned him and gave him a new type of toughness that he didn't have to experience in the Indoor Football League. You'll see the same Chris Dixon though," Riggs said.

The Storm will defend their title at home on February 21st in a championship rematch with the Nebraska Danger.
