JACKSON, Miss. - Mississippi State running back Anthony Dixon has added another honor to his ever-growing collection.

The star senior from Jackson was in his hometown Monday night where he was named the 2009 Cellular South Conerly Trophy winner as the best collegiate football player in the state of Mississippi for 2009. The presentation was made at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame & Museum.

Since the Conerly Trophy's origination in 1996, Mississippi State has claimed the award three times including Dixon's honor. The other two Bulldog honorees were also running backs - J.J. Johnson in 1998 and Jerious Norwood in 2005.

Among his many accomplishments this season, Dixon surpassed Norwood as State's all-time leading rusher, ending his standout career with 3,994 yards. He is also MSU's career leader in touchdowns scored with 42.

In 11 games played this season, Dixon amassed a school-best 1,391 yards, including eight performances of 100 yards or better. In State's victory at Kentucky, he set a new single-game school mark with 252 yards on the ground against the Wildcats.

His 126.5 yards-per-game average leads the Southeastern Conference in rushing and he stands third in the league in scoring touchdowns. He scored 12 times in 2009.
