Former Army teammates Trent Steelman and Larry Dixon will be reunited on the football field this summer. Steelman and Dixon were among the 45 players chosen by USA Football to represent Team USA in the upcoming 2015 World Championships. The fifth International Federation of American Football tournament will be held July 9-18 in Canton, Ohio. The United States, as you might expect, is a heavy favorite to win it all.
The team will be coached by former Boise State and Colorado head coach Dan Hawkins, and the roster includes 25 players from FBS programs. The rest of the roster consists of players from lower levels of football. Hawkins will have a staff including his son Cody Hawkins as quarterbacks coach and former Washington State head coach Paul Wulff as offensive coordinator.
Steelman is listed as a wide receiver for Team USA, and not quarterback. Steelman was Army’s quarterback from 2009 to 2012. Dixon was a team leader on offense as well, rushing for 1,102 yards for Army in 2014.
