Career[edit]

College & Amateur[edit]

Dixon played four years of college soccer at the University of West Florida.[1]

During his time at college, Dixon also played for USL PDL clubs Mississippi Brilla in 2010 and 2011 and Panama City Beach Pirates in 2012.[2][3]

Professional[edit]

Dixon signed his first professional contract in 2013, signing for new USL Pro franchise VSI Tampa Bay FC.[4] After Tampa Bay folded at the end of their debut season, Dixon signed with USL Pro team Charlotte Eagles.[5]

On January 15, 2015, it was announced that Dixon signed with USL expansion side Saint Louis FC.[6] While with the club that year, he was slated to join the Jamaica national team for the Copa América and Gold Cup tournaments that summer,[7] but was ultimately not named to the final tournament roster for either competition[8][9] after suffering an injury during a U.S. Open Cup match against Minnesota United FC.[10]

Dixon was released by Saint Louis FC on November 10, 2016.[11]
