Landon Dickerson has impressed this spring, earning invitations to both the U.S. Army All-American and Under Armour All-American games (he will play in the Under Armour event). In addition to those all-star invites, the 6’5″, 300-pound rising senior has also accumulated numerous scholarship offers from top programs throughout the country.

“It feels really good,” Dickerson said of the recognition he has received. “All of the hard work I’m doing is finally paying off. A lot of people were doubting my ability because the conference I play in hasn’t produced as many college prospects, but it’s good to know people know what I can do. I proved to myself that what people say doesn’t matter. If I do what I know how to do on the field, it is good enough.”

The South Caldwell (Hudson, N.C.) standout discussed what makes him successful on the football field.

“My discipline and footwork are setting me aside from so many others,” Dickerson said. “At the Nike and Rivals camps in Charlotte, that’s what set me apart. They liked my aggressiveness, discipline and footwork.”

Versatility is something Dickerson has gained as well on the high school level.

“I’ve gone through three different high school coaches,” said Dickerson, who has played tackle and guard in high school. “I’m experienced in every aspect of football and how to play the game. I’ve played in a Wing T, Spread, and Pro-Style offenses. Last year I was in an offense where we threw for 350 yards, and now I’m in an offense where we are rushing for 460.
