Keshawn Dyson was honored as the top linebacker prospect in attendance at the Explosive Southern Pigskin Camp in Savannah.

SouthernPigskin.com recently debuted a regional recruiting camp on March 2, 2014, at Calvary Day School in Savannah, Georgia. The camp concluded as a huge success, with many participants attending this camp to try to better their football shills. Instructions and drills were led by former collegiate and professional athletes in conjunction with Explosive Sports. 

Cross Creek High School sophomore outside linebacker Keshawn Dyson did not take his opportunity at camp lightly.

“I mean, to me, it’s a wonderful camp because you get to work on specific skills and you can show what you are all about,” said Dyson.

Dyson absorbed all the coaching that was available at the camp to try to better his skills for the upcoming season.

“I’m just trying to better my skills and trying to move up to the next level,” Dyson commented.

Despite being just a sophomore, Dyson already has the ideal build for a collegiate defensive end, while at the same time possessing the athleticism to succeed at outside linebacker. His diverse skill set will allow him to make a huge impact for his high school team as it prepares for the season ahead. Though Dyson currently plays linebacker for the Razorbacks, if he can continue to bulk up in the weight room, a position change to defensive end would not be out of the question.

Wanting to fully maximize his potential, Dyson knows what he needs to work on in order to get noticed by the top-tier schools regionally.

“They told me my 40-yard dash was a 4.9, but I know I can do better than that because that’s just me. I’m a competitor and I like to compete; I want to be the best,” said Dyson. 

Dyson received the award for being the top linebacker prospect in attendance in Savannah. For being built more like a defensive end as opposed to an outside linebacker, Dyson displayed very good athleticism during individual drills.

There will be plenty of opportunities for Dyson to play football at the next level. Some schools that Dyson would like to play for did not come as a surprise.

“I really want to try to play for North Carolina State, Florida, or South Carolina State," Dyson remarked.

Dyson put himself on the path to success by attending the Explosive Southern Pigskin Camp. By making the decision ti attend, he did himself a great service in honing his skills. Dyson also now has a leg up on his competition and is much closer to his dream of playing collegiate football.
