IFL: Dixon's Back At Quarterback For Storm

IFL: Dixon's Back At Quarterback For Storm
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Sioux Falls Storm has collected seven league championships in 14 seasons.  This year's team is looking to complete the second four-peat in franchise history, and it'll do so with a familiar face at quarterback.

After spending a season in the Arena Football League, quarterback Chris Dixon, one of the most decorated players in Indoor Football history, has rejoined the Storm.

"He's looking good.  He's putting the ball on receivers, giving them an opportunity to make plays.  He's looking good.  He's talking a lot of trash, but we talk it back.  Honestly, he's looking good.  He's looking real competitive," Storm Linebacker Tyler Knight said.

"I like the family feeling, and being around my family.  The Storm always felt like family, so it's good to be around them," Storm Quarterback Chris Dixon said.

Dixon helped the Storm win championships in 2011 and 2012, and watched from afar last season, learning some important life lessons in the AFL.

"When you get your opportunities, take advantage of them, and never not count your blessings.  I was given everything I got, but my opportunities weren't coming.  So, you had to wait your turn, wait your turn, wait your turn.  That's the one thing I did learn," Dixon said.

A new season brings new opportunities, and new faces in new places for the Storm.

"Guys that, when I was here, maybe weren't here or didn't play very much when I was here, now are that guy, stepping up and being a leader and more accountable and more counted on.  It's a good feeling to watch those guys grow up," Dixon said.

A veteran of indoor football, Dixon has thrown for more than 500 career touchdowns, and he's ready to lead by example.

"I'm always going to have that pressure.  To be a quarterback, you accept it.  I think know it's just more the feeling of accountability, and that we can all count on each other, and we know what we can do, and that's a good feeling to have," Dixon said.

Dixon and the Storm host Nebraska in Friday's season opener.  Kickoff is scheduled for 7:05.  When asked about running through the tunnel for the first time, Dixon said with a smile, "I don't know.  The emotions haven't gotten to me yet.  Ask me after the game and I'll tell you."
