Dillon Springer has the right tenacity for the kind of future he’s chasing.

After not receiving any Division 1 offers coming out of Midland High, Springer spent a year at Trinity Community College in Athens, where he was content to just let his play do the talking.

As a freshman, Springer registered 28 tackles, five for loss and a sack, in landing the scholarship to Georgia Southern that will reunite him with former Midland teammate Traver Vliem.

“It’s definitely overwhelming,” Springer recently told MRT.com. “There’s lots of excitement building up. It’s a long journey. I have dreamed about his since I was growing up. In high school, I was working toward this and it didn’t come to me right away so I had to go to JUCO, trust the process and now I’m here. I’m ready to go to work.”

The Eagles—9-3, and 6-2 in the Sun Belt East this season—are counting on a hefty return from the 6-foot-1, 250-pound sophomore, who seems convinced he and Vliem can be as effective together in Statesboro as they were at Midland.

“It feels like a dream to be with one of my teammates,” he said. “We took over high school together. We are going to work to take over the Sun Belt Conference.”
