Arriving in Tuscaloosa in 2019, Dickerson enrolled in the University’s MBA program and was selected to the CoSIDA Academic All-District IV team in 2019 in addition to earning SEC First-Year Academic Honor Roll recognition as a redshirt junior. In addition to his standout efforts in the classroom, he has taken part in nearly 40 hours of community service across his two schools while also being selected to Alabama Football’s Leadership Group for his senior season.
