Strong finished 10-2 in 2010, with their only regular season loss being at Bearden. Kenneth Dixon led the way with 2203 yards and 36 touchdowns.
Dixon listed Junction City and Parkers Chapel as Strong's biggest rivals. That's not a bad deal for Dixon, as Strong was 2-0 against the two fellow District and Union County teams.
So what schools have shown interest in Dixon? "Memphis, Arkansas, ULM, Missouri State, Ole Miss, Auburn, and Louisiana Tech," listed Dixon. "Louisiana Tech will probably be an offer once I get my film." Dixon currently has offers from ULM, Arkansas State, and Missouri State.
Zhakeem Hollidy from Junction City will also make it down to Ruston. "I went to camp there last summer," explained Hollidy, who plays tight end and defensive end for the Dragons.
Hollidy talked about his team. "We did okay," he added. "We lost out in the second round, mostly because of youth. But we're going to win it all next year."
Junction City has long been the dominant team in Class 2A when it comes to teams from the southern part of the state. The Dragons will have to get back on track against Bearden and Strong if they want to make a run in the playoffs.
Randy Taylor from Parkers Chapel and Shamario Allmond from Pine Bluff Dollarway are also scheduled to be on hand for Louisiana Tech's Junior Day on Saturday.
