News: Eagles coach Dave Dixon reloads for 2018 PDL campaign
Eagles coach Dave Dixon reloads for 2018 PDL campaign If a ship is only as good as its captain, the Charlotte Eagles appear unsinkable with Dave Dixon as head coach. Leading the club to the 2017 PDL title in their third season since self-relegating form the USL, the Eagles' 25 th season sent a message that it's about how you finish, not how you start. Just as quickly as they dispatched Thunder Bay Chill 2-1 in the final, the 2018 recruiting process began. "It makes it easy, but it also makes it really difficult, because we get bombarded with different players who obviously want to be here just based on reading and seeing our success," Dixon said. "Recruiting starts basically as soon as the season is done in August with the college season starting up, and kind of the identification process throughout the season," Dixon said. "Once we get through that process, we'll start announcing players that are coming back, and then new players." Dixon's has been busy since winning the league in August. His involvement as a Charlotte Soccer Academy coach helped speed up the transition from PDL to academy coaching. "I had to get over it pretty quick," Dixon said. "I love coaching and being out on the field," Dixon said. "A lot of our fans who come out to the Eagles games are kids that I coach, and I take my players out to my training sessions, and we do some different things," Dixon said. The annual Charlotte Soccer Gala has chosen Dixon as keynote speaker, which will take place at the Project 658 Center on Central Avenue on Jan. 13 at 7 p.m. Proceeds the Special Olympics. "It's nice to have someone like Dave, who we know is a quality coach," said gala organizer and former Eagles player Luke Williams.
