Dixon sets Arkansas rushing record


Ken Dixon, a 5-foot-10, 210-pound senior running back from Strong (Arkansas) High School, broke the state single-season rushing record in 11-player football in the Bulldogs’ 45-20 win over Carlisle (Arkansas) High School in the Arkansas Activities Association Class AA state championship game.

In that game, Dixon ran for 348 yards to give him 3,153 rushing yards this season. He surpassed Derek Lawson of Jonesboro (Arkansas) Nettleton, who rushed for 3,093 yards in 2006, according to the National Federation of State High School Associations’ National High School Sports Record Book.

Strong, which finished the season with a 10-3 record, advanced to the title game for the first time.
