Notes: Nixon is a star in track and field as well as a standout in football. He likely projects as a cornerback on the next level.

Coach John Acquavita on Nixon's 2004 season: "Week 6 was actually the first time he played in the games. We put him at defensive back. Our conference championship game, which was week 9, our rival Thanksgiving game is week 10, the semifinal is week 11 and then the championship game. Those are the only four or five games he played at corner, so the kid barely got his feet wet. But he could be big time.”
