Niagara Falls' Dixon making waves on the mat for Canisius
February 07, 2020


By field or by mat it doesn't matter, leaders lead. That's all that Joe Dixon does.

The Niagara Falls native has found a home on Delaware Avenue, helping Canisius football win its first Catholic state title since 2016 in the fall. "JoJo" hasn't stopped there though; the junior has dominated the wrestling scene this season, compiling a 36-3 record in the 160- and 170-pound weight classes.

Wrestling coach David Wilcox said it's been phenomenal working with Dixon this season, calling him a very bright kid and a great asset to the team because of his leadership and talents. But it's the intangible qualities about Dixon that have stood out most to Wilcox.
