Byers is the guy you don’t want to see across the line from you. Before you game you scouted you know to expect, sorry it doesn’t matter. He is just bigger, more physical, and more determined to beat you and wear you down. Play after play he beats his opponents down.
“Then you will eventually crush their will to play & they will stop trying & make your job a lot easier, says Daxton. “Go hard until the whistle every play. One of the most dominating lineman in the entire state, he is as good as they come and has the attitude to make it big at the next level.

Six Star — What aspects of you game did you improve upon over the summer
Daxton —The main thing that helped me get out this summer was the Nike opening. I got in & put up some really good numbers for my position& after they sent out the numbers the colleges starting talking to me. From the end of my junior season to the Nike opening camp I had went from 6’4 260 to 6’5 295 during the summer. I had hit a huge growth spurt & got in the gym & got myself on the radar. & my 5.26 40 time & 26 inch vertical at 6’5 295 was very good.
Six Star — What did you take away from camps
Daxton —What I took away from the camps was that you have got to stand out of you want to be noticed. You can’t just do what everyone else is doing. You’ve got to play harder & dirtier than everyone else in order to get looks. This season I played a lot smarter than I did my junior season. My junior season there were only a couple games where I didn’t get a person foul & my senior season I only got 2 the whole season.
