SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A man widely considered one of the greatest quarterbacks in Indoor Football League history is calling it a career.
Thirty-two-year-old Sioux Falls Storm signal-caller Chris Dixon says he is retiring after a decade-long career in which he threw for more than 25,000 yards and 600 touchdowns. He cites age and family considerations.
Dixon led the Storm and the now-defunct Billings Outlaws to five Indoor Football League titles, and was named the league's most valuable player three times. He also has had stints with several teams in the Arena Football League, the highest level of indoor football.
Dixon is a native of Oakland, California. He played his college ball at Humboldt State University in that state. He plans to move back to Billings and spend more time with his children.
