LYNN HAVEN — Nat Dixon performed a hat trick on Wednesday.

The Mosley standout increased the anticipation of where he’d play college football next season until the last moment. The wide receiver narrowed his choices to four Football Bowl Subdivision schools, each represented by a baseball cap in front of him and his parents while seated in front of a packed Marvin McCain Technology Center. Dixon didn’t keep the people waiting much longer.

Boston College won the services of the 6-foot-4, 190-pound athlete, whose leaping ability and speed make him an intriguing prospect on the next level. Dixon’s overall skills as a pass catcher are still raw and being honed, but his potential attracted the attention of USF, Western Kentucky and Troy University, among others.

Dixon wasn’t the only Dolphin to share in the day’s festivities, as Christian Childree, Jeff Hall, Banton Price and Ryan Rogers also cemented college futures. Hall and Rogers will play at FAMU in Tallahassee and Price and Childree were among three area athletes to pick Faulkner in Montgomery, Ala.

Dixon also was a standout basketball player and entertained playing the sport in college. He said Troy was the best option to continue his hoops career and the Trojans were in the running until Wednesday morning.

“I made the decision when I woke up,” Dixon said. “I had to make the decision that was best for me.”
