Personal comments from Dawson-- 

I am a Top Punter for the class of 2008.
I broke Jason Elamís High School record with a 74 yard punt my Junior year.
I was All County my Junior season and I believe I can be All State in 2007.
I competed in my first Kicking Expo at the University of Miami (January 19-21, 2007) where I tied for first and was runner up in the tie-breaker. I had the longest punt in competition 55 yards with a 4.7 hang time.

I am Great at Kickoffs with a very strong leg.
86% of my kickoffs were touchbacks for 2006 season. Expo (January 19-21, 2007) my longest Kickoff from the 35 yard line went 12 yards deep into the end zone.
My average kickoff distance was 5.89 yards deep from the 35 yard line using one inch tee and was the best distance on average out of 29 juniors and 29 seniors.

I am Committed and Disciplined.
Since fall 2006, I have been driving to Prattville, Alabama from Atlanta, GA every other week to train with Kicking Coach, Mike McCabe. My technique, hang time, and concentration are improving rapidly.
I have also had the privilege of training several times with Kody Bliss, Auburn Universityís Punter and NFL prospect.
Matt Clark, Auburn Universityís Kickoff Specialist and I kicked together several weekends in Prattville and he believes I have a D-I leg.

I will attend several Kicking Camps for Punters this summer.
I am being recruited by Auburn, Clemson, Harvard, Maryland, University of Virginia, Vanderbilt and Wake Forest, and North Carolina.

I have played High School Basketball and AAU Basketball.
I have college athletes in my family who played football at Auburn and tennis at Vanderbilt.
One of my brothers, Walker, is on the US National U-14 Soccer Team.
One of my brothers, Carter, is on the Brookwood High School Golf Team.

I have a strong Spiritual Life.
I am a follower of Jesus Christ and committed church member.
