Tallmadge star Dixon shows how busy the days are during recruitment

Editor’s note: Collin Dixon has agreed to give readers an insight into what goes into recruiting and the daily trials and tribulations of being one of the most sought after players in Division I college football. below is the third in a series of journal-like entries written by junior Tallmadge.

In the fall, a typical day for me started at 7 a.m. when I got up to go to school. I arrived at school around 7:35 p.m. and it ended at 2:40 p.m.

After school I lifted with my football team from 3 to 4 and then we practiced from 4 to 6. Normally after practice I would go eat something with my friends and sometimes go watch our classmates’ soccer or volleyball matches.

At the end of the day, I would catch up on my homework and usually play video games or watch YouTube if I had time.

I spent a lot of my weekends on unofficial visits, trying to see as many schools as possible. On the weekends I didn’t go to a school, I spent Saturday mornings watching the movie of the Friday night game and watching our JV football team play, then I spent the rest of the time hanging out with my friends and my family.

Mix basketball and football

In the winter, my schedule was pretty similar except it was basketball season instead of football. In addition to basketball, I trained for football every Sunday. During the winter there was a period when the coaches were allowed to come to the school to meet in person. During this time, I was able to meet coaches that I did not have the opportunity to visit in the fall.
