He doesn't have elite top-end speed and isn't a power-back (yet).
But he's got some of the best feet and eyes I've ever seen. He's got elite short-area quickness, burst, and balance. He's an awesome change-of-pace to Feaster and ETN, who are more north-south runners, because you can put Dixon in and have an entirely different running type to throw off defenders.

It was 100% to make sure Choice and Feaster got their time in that game. Mostly for Choice who was a senior.
Sometimes Dabo will skip over the veterans to get carries for younger guys in regular season blowouts, but he always lets his veterans and leaders of the team get in to soak in the glory of big games when possible.
Watching Lyn J could have been fun, but Adam Choice earned every one of those carries he got on the last drive.
Thanks for posting Tigerdug23, I bet you did this bc you and Lyn-J have the same number LOL Dabo and coaches are having so much success with giving so many true freshman a chance to play and be successful, I bet that other Head Coaches are going to start following what Dabo is doing with our true freshman, (and it does attract that type of freshman talent) and start doing it them selves to try and attract the same with promising playing time like coach Swinney does at Clemson!!! We won a NC with playing a lot of true freshman....
