Cowboys DE Marcus Dixon Still Fighting
Awhile ago, we posted an article on Cowboys defensive end Marcus Dixon. The title of that piece was “Overcoming Adversity“–a task Dixon has completed again and again (and not just in his playing career).
Downtrodden. Written off. An underdog.
When the situation seems toughest, though, Marcus has learned to thrive. While others sulk when times get tough, Dixon has learned to work even harder. His past, like anyone’s, has not been all smooth sailing. These experiences and his ability to overcome life’s obstacles, though, are the reasons why he cannot be counted out. In a way, his past is his future.
In an effort to focus on Dixon’s future, we didn’t get into specifics regarding his rocky past. Today, Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas posted an outstanding article on Dixon that digs a bit deeper into his journey to the NFL. For those of you who are interested in learning more about Dixon, we highly recommend reading it.
We are projecting Dixon to ‘overcome adversity’ yet again this season and make the final 53-man roster.
