Clayton gets starting nod
Dixon actually made the announcement of his position switch to the team at a meeting on Monday and received a large roar from the defense. He wore a new uniform, No. 9, and reported with the secondary at Monday night's practice at Rebel Park.
"Youth football probably," Dixon said when asked the last time he played in the secondary. "It's been a while."
Dixon said "he was excited" and "ready to help the team out" when he got the news of the position switch.
"I just want to help the team out and get us some more victories this season," he said. "We're kind of think over there."
"I was kind of surprised," Clayton said when he heard that Dixon was moving to defense. "(Dixon) took it like a champ. ... I planned on being the starter anyway (but) the switch (by Dixon) was a surprise."
Redshirt freshman Mike Clausen, a highly touted recruit from Riverside, Calif., will back Clayton up.
< br> "Omar has had a great summer and off-season, and our players have a lot of confidence in him," Sanford said. "Travis is a great athlete. Our players have tremendous respect for him and he will help us on defense. ... I think it's really good thing for our football team."
