ST. GEORGE – Dixie High School basketball star Walker Swenson signed his National Letter of Intent today committing to play for Dixie State College.

Swenson chose to stay close to home and play in front of family and friends instead of playing junior college ball elsewhere.

Swenson is the second local player Dixie State College signed this year. Brandon Simister also signed to play with Dixie State.

Swenson and Simister join former Region 9 players Dalton Groskreutz of Snow Canyon and Derek Owen of Dixie High.

Swenson finished the year leading the Flyers to a fourth place finish in the state tournament. Swenson averaged 13.35 points per game while grabbing 6.14 rebounds per game.

Swenson will play one year before going on his LDS church mission.

    If the kid is an actual ‘star’ then he needs to surround himself with personnel that can gear him towards making a career for himself. I’m sorry Swenson, but the scouting report so far is that you chose to play against crappy competition by choosing ‘family’; and that you’d rather play in front of your mam, paps, and 20 uncles instead of really gearing yourself into a profession that can land you somewhere. While your dillying yourself getting an education at Dixie that will pit you as an insurance salesman, getting married and having 6 kids, think about how you could have escaped the bubble and done something a bit bigger.
