The West Virginia Roughriders have signed defensive back Davon Dixon for the 2019 season, the team announced on Tuesday, November 6th, 2018. 

Davon Dixon, a 27 yr old defensive back played college football at Tiffin University, located in Tiffin Ohio, in 2011-2012 and then went onto play in 2013-2014 as a DB for East Stroudsburg University.
