Mikey Dixon Is a Big Time Player for Sanford School

The Sanford School Warriors are rated as the #1 team in the state of Delaware. The main reason for the team’s success is 6’1” junior guard, Mikey Dixon, who just may be the best player is the entire state.
On Tuesday afternoon, Mikey scored 39 points as Sanford held off Delcastle 72-68 to maintain the top spot in the rankings. He was the only player on the team to score in double figures. He has been the most consistent and clutch player in the state.
Sanford led the Cougars 36-32 at the half and also led 53-47 after three quarters but Delcastle kept the game close behind the good effort from 6’1” junior Desmond Gould, who netted 17 points for the home team. Delcastle (12-8) will be in the upcoming state playoffs and could surprise a lot of teams.
The Sanford Warriors (16-4) will be favored to win the state championship because they start 3 Division I college basketball prospects including Dixon, 6’8” junior center Jacob Walsh and 6’3” sophomore guard Eric Ayala.
Dixon, who is a strong candidate to be the state player of the year and also first all-state, is being recruited by Bucknell, Delaware, Holy Cross and West Virginia. He is scoring 21 ppg and is shooting 54 percent from the floor and making 76 percent of his free throws. The Warriors will be going for a record 8th state championship in Delaware and Dixon is the kind of player who can carry a team to a title.
