TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Junior Antwuan Dixon, a team tri-captain on
the Florida State University men’s basketball team, has been named to the
National Student Advisory Council and will serve for the second consecutive
year on the Atlantic Coast Conference Student Advisory Council. The
national council consists of students-athletes from across the country
while the ACC council is made up of one student-athlete from each of the
conference’s nine schools.

“It is an honor to serve the NCAA, the ACC and Florida State
University as a member two prestigious and important groups,” said Dixon.
“I am able to share my views and those of my fellow student-athletes while
learning a great deal about athletics. I feel that I am making a
difference for both current and future student-athletes both at FSU and
nationally.”

The national board meets twice during the academic year while the
ACC board meets once. The student-athletes discuss issues in collegiate
athletics and those concerning their particular sports. The national
council is scheduled to meet in Orlando, Fla., in January and in
Indianapolis in April. The ACC group meets in Greensboro.

Dixon, a Marietta, Ga., will compete for the starting job at small
forward this season after appearing in 29 games as a sophomore. He
averaged 4.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 18.4 minutes per game and scored in
double figures six times. He shot a career-high 35.3 percent from the
3-point line and a career-high 76.3 percent from the free throw line as a
sophomore.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for Antwuan and I am very happy
that he has accepted the chance to become a member of both of these
prestigious student-athlete boards,” said Seminole head coach Steve
Robinson. “Opportunities like these help student-athletes see athletics in
a different light, and allows them to make a positive impact away from the
basketball court.”
