Dixon High School is pleased to announce Wes Besseghini as the new head football coach. Coach Besseghini’s history with Dixon Football runs deep. He began his playing career with Dixon Youth Football, and later used this experience to catapult him to a successful high school career with the Rams. He was a two-time All-League selection, and the league’s Defensive MVP while at Dixon High School. His high school success earned him the notice of college recruiters, and Coach Besseghini went on to play football at Azusa Pacific University. While injuries limited his ability to play at Azusa, Wes was a standout in the classroom and was named to the Dean’s List while there.
After graduation, Wes returned to Dixon and immediately began working with Dixon High School Football. He served as the JV Head Football Coach from 2007 to 2008, where his teams enjoyed considerable success. Coach Besseghini then moved to the Varsity level in 2009, where he was the Defensive Coordinator for a league champion Dixon team. Wes served in the same capacity in 2010, when the Rams made the playoffs for the third straight year. Additionally, in 2010 Coach Besseghini served as Coach Winslow’s Assistant Head Coach and handled most of the administrative duties assigned to a head coach. Coach Besseghini is also the Head Coach of the Dixon High School softball team, and is a PE teacher at the Dixon Montessori School.
Dixon High School was fortunate to receive applications from a number of outstanding candidates, and is thankful for the many hours spent by our hiring committee.
