In 2007, Dixon put together one of the best senior seasons in school history, guiding Oregon to an 8-1 record and a No. 2 seed in the BCS standings before a knee injury prematurely curtailed his Heisman Trophy campaign and ultimately ended the Ducks’ BCS title game hopes. He was the Pacific-10 Conference’s unanimous Offensive Player of the Year and the honorable mention All-American finished ninth on the school’s single-season total offense chart (2,719 yards) despite playing in only 10 games. He completed his collegiate career as the single-season and all-time school record-holder in passing completion percentage (67.7% and 63.9%, respectively). A major league baseball prospect in the Atlanta Braves organization, he was drafted in the fifth round of the 2008 NFL Draft by the Pittsburgh Steelers and earned a Super Bowl ring during his rookie season.
