Patriots soccer star signs with Darton

May 8, 2007

Albany - Westover High soccer star Thomas Dixon will be staying close at home.

Dixon signing a scholarship with Darton College today.

Thomas Dixon was part of a Westover soccer team that has won 40 games over the last three years and made three straight playoff appearances.

New Darton men's soccer coach has plenty of open roster spots.

And he wants to fill those openings with as many area players as possible.

Darton soccer coach Bart Sasnett said "You've got so much talent in this area, with Darton being a community college, we want to get the talent in the surrounding area to come to us. We don't want to lose them to anybody else."

Thomas Dixon said "Just growing up here, I grew up around Darton. Always been to their soccer games, and I figured why not give it a try."

The Darton soccer team will have as many as 20 new players this year.
