The Dixie Hollins Rebels know they can’t replace an offensive machine overnight like the one they had in Tyrie Adams last season. The do-it-all baller racked up over 3,400 yards and 37 touchdowns for Dixie in spite of their 1-9 record. 2017 ATH Chaddrick Cann Jr may not be Tyrie Adams, but this young man has been putting the work in at the quarterback position for two seasons during the offseason. In 2014, Cann Jr. played receiver for Dixie Hollins, catching 7 passes for 140 yards in five games.
This season, the Rebels are out of their district in Class 6A with Largo, Osceola and Venice and into an all-Pinellas grouping with Boca Ciega, Clearwater, Largo, Northeast and Osceola in District 6A-9. First, Dixie Holiness will open up their preseason with a week zero trip down to Naples to face Barron Collier. The Rebels then open their regular season with Countryside at home, then a trip up to north county to face Tarpon Springs week two. After a week three bye, weeks four and five see them hosting Largo and Lakewood. After facing Osceola and Seminole on the road in weeks six and seven, the Rebels head home to face Clearwater week eight.
Dixie Hollins will then finish out the regular season with district road games at Northeast and Boca Ciega and then host Pinellas Park in the final week of the season. For highlights of Chaddrick Cann Jr. from the Xecutives 2015, click the video link BELOW —->
