In 2020, Dixon was signed as the first official professional player for Chattanooga Football Club. Prior to that, he played for the University of West Florida, after which he went on to play for teams in the PDL, USL League 1, USL League 2, and USL Championship before settling in the Scenic City. During his tenure in USL Championship and League 1, Dixon averaged 1.28 points per game and made 123 appearances.

Originally hailing from Hanover, Jamaica, Dixon has made a name for himself as a stand out player in the American leagues after moving here at the age of 14.

Even with injuries, Dixon started and played in 7 games, had 3 assists and appeared for a total of 554 minutes last season. Head coach Fuller had nothing but praise for his defender when asked about Dixon’s 2020 performance, and values his leadership both on and off the field.

Dixon signed his first professional contract in 2013, signing for new USL Pro franchise VSI Tampa Bay FC. After Tampa Bay folded at the end of their debut season, Dixon signed with USL Pro team Charlotte Eagles.

On 15 January 2015, it was announced that Dixon signed with USL expansion side Saint Louis FC. While with the club that year, he was slated to join the Jamaica national team for the Copa América and Gold Cup tournaments that summer, but was ultimately not named to the final tournament roster for either competition after suffering an injury during a U.S. Open Cup match against Minnesota United FC.
