Football is making a comeback at Texas Wesleyan after a 75-year hiatus, and football players like De'Marcus Nixon are excited to be part of the new tradition.

Nixon is a freshman dual business and mass communication major and expects to graduate in May 2020.

What do you like most about TXWES?

"I like the small class sizes and the help I get from the Academic Success Center."

How has Texas Wesleyan had a positive influence in your life?

"Wesleyan has influenced my life in a positive way by improving my work ethic off the football field, which has gone to another level. Also, meeting lifetime friends from other countries has shown me there are places I can travel in the world and not be a stranger."
