by Andy Hilton, recruit757
I.C. Norcom has delivered the #7 and #8 athlete in our Fab 30 countdown. That should give you an indication of the Greyhounds’ potential for the 2018 season.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the #7 senior prospect region-wide is I.C. Norcom defensive back Casaan Dixon.

Despite a knee injury that ended his junior season, Casaan Dixon has a determination that won’t let injury define him. He has picked up numerous college offers since the end of the 2017 season, including Richmond, Grambling, James Madison and William and Mary.
“The mentality of the kids is that if somebody goes down, we have somebody to fill right in. It will only make us better when (Casaan Dixon) comes back, Taurus Jones as well,” said Coach Larry Archie in the middle of the summer, before Dixon and Jones had officially returned to practice.
The Greyhounds will need the services of Dixon and Jones as they tackle their schedule. They get challenged from the jump with their opener coming Friday, August 24 when defending Class 3 state champion Hopewell visits Joe Langston Stadium on the campus of I.C. Norcom High School.
