Another Home Town Hero : Winchester's Tommy Dixon




Handley Judges Head Coach Tommy Dixon has been on the sidelines for the Winchester school for 23 years now. While our paths don't cross that often it is always a treat for me to get to visit with someone that has dedicated such a large part of his life to teaching/coaching/ mentoring student athletes.

Wednesday night the Judges were in Woodstock to face the Central Falcons. When you combine Dixon and Falcons Head Coach Roger Wilkins time in the gym together you have nearly half a century of time spent teaching young men and women equal parts basketball & life.

Dixon and his team got the better of Wilkins Wednesday night by a final score of 60-50 and I can promise you this- every player that suited up for the game is better for the opportunity to being mentored by these two gentleman.
I had the chance to ask Coach Dixon for a thought or two about his time with the Handley program...

"I want our kids to do things right, not just on the court but in everything they do in life," Dixon said. "It was the way that I was brought up and it is what I try to impress on our kids."

Well said Coach! Here is to 23 more years!
