Scouting Portfolio, Tre Dickerson, Defensive Back

Tre Dickerson | DB | Sioux Falls Storm/Emporia State | 5110 | 185 | Corinth, TX | Lake Dallas HS

Overview: A versatile defensive back capable of playing cornerback, nickelback or safety, Tre Dickerson is a late bloomer in his development but has created renowned interest after an impressive stint in the IFL. Dickerson guided the Sioux Falls Storm to the league championship, leading the team in interceptions. The indoor arena and smaller field has really enhanced his short area quickness and change of direction skills. Dickerson demonstrates excellent hip recoil at the point of attack and is physical along the perimeter verses the run game. He also shows smooth transition ability in off coverage. While Dickerson possesses a lighter frame, he has settled in on a playing weight between 185-190 pounds; he does play bigger than his size indicates and owns a 33” vertical jump, along with a 10-foot broad jump. After playing wide receiver, running back and return man since the seventh grade, his maturation of playing defensive back has truly come into focus this past season, as he had never played cornerback until his freshman year of college. Dickerson projects in a zone defense, as a nickelback, with the versatility to play safety, in addition to the ability to contribute on special teams.

Background: A Houston native, who eventually moved to Dallas at the age of 14 when his mom passed away. Dickerson grew up as a multi-sport athlete, excelling in basketball, baseball and track & field. He also competed on the track team at Emporia State in the triple jump during his collegiate career. An outdoorsman, Dickerson enjoys hiking and fishing during his spare time. He is the cousin of NFL Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson.

Career: A member of the 2019 Sioux Falls Storm championship team in the IFL. Dickerson was also in camp for the San Antonio team of the Alliance American Football league. Coming out of Emporia State, Dickerson performed in the College Gridiron Showcase. He had 39 catches for 625 yards and seven touchdowns as a senior at Lake Dallas High School; he also averaged 5.7 yards per carry on 64 rushes with five touchdowns.
