We take a break from the defensive linemen for a moment to learn about back-up punter Riley Dixon.
Name: Riley Dixon
Hometown: Blossvale, NY
High School: Christian Brothers Academy
2012 Stats: Three total punts with a 36.3 yard average, and a long of 49.
2013 Projections: I assume that Jonathan Fisher will retain his starting role as Punter, but he hasn't been a world beater during his SU career, so maybe Dixon can get back in this?
How'd He Get Here?: Local CBA kid available to walk on plus questions at punter equals hey Riley Dixon's on the team!
What'd Scout/Rivals Say?: Nothing from those jerks.
Money Quote: RILEY NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Links of Wonder: Marrone wasn't thrilled with the production from his punters after last year's USC game.
What Does Shafer Think: Not sure...but Dixon seems to be a fan of Shafer based on his retweet of this Greg Paulus tweet after Shafer was hired:
Congratulations to Scott Shafer on becoming Head Coach at Syracuse! Excited for the program and him! His passion is contagious!— Greg Paulus (@Greg_Paulus) January 8, 2013
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Riley has a crippling fear of most television programs:
