Dixon now holds the All Time Single Season Record for Passing Yards and Passing Touchdowns for the Storm. The standout season earned Dixon IFL MVP, IFL Offensive Player of the Year and First All-IFL honors.
“After spending a few months here in the off-season, I have realized how great the city of Sioux Falls is, and how loyal and great the fans are. This has made me realize that this is the best place for me to play, and for my family to live. I love the direction that the Sioux Falls Storm is headed, and am excited to be part of the continued excellence we have displayed on the field.” – Chris Dixon II
