Dawson played college football and baseball for the University of Alabama-Birmingham. He played centerfield for the Blazer's baseball team and was a WR/QB on the football team from 2001-03 before transferring to play baseball at the University of Montevallo (May 2003-06). Dawson helped lead the Falcons to a 43-18 record in his senior season, finishing ranked third in the nation by USA Today after losing in the Division II College World Series to the University of Tampa. Dawson hit .361 with 32 stolen bases in his senior year.
After the College World Series, Dawson signed with the Kansas City T-Bones of the Northern Independent League as an OF. Dawson also split time with the Anderson Joes and Charlotte County Redfish before making the switch back to football in the AFPL Arena League.
Dawson moved to Atlanta, Ga., in 2013 to coach baseball at East Cobb and was also named Paideia School's (Atlanta) Head Baseball Coach in August 2013, where he led the Pythons to an overall 42-35 record in his first three seasons as head coach.
During this time, Dawson joined Head Coach Mike Twardoski's staff at Emory University prior to the start of the 2017 season, helping the Eagles to a 27-14 record and a berth into the NCAA Tournament. As a member of Twardoski's staff, he assisted with the offense and running game, as well as overseeing the outfield.
Dawson received his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology/Health Promotion from the University of Montevallo in 2006 and is currently working on his master’s in Sport Management from Troy University.

— Ashley Parent
August 10, 2018: My son loved everything about the camp. He looked forward to it everyday even in the 90 degree heat. He really enjoyed the coaching staff and we could see his improvement. We are definitely doing it again next year. I liked how the camp focuses on being a well rounded baseball player. I liked how the coaches encouraged being a good teammate and good sportsmanship. I appreciate the coaches being honest with the kids and making sure they abide by the rules. I also appreciate that kids actually compete for prizes and they aren’t handed out.
— Christine S. Parent

— Tracey L. Parent
It was a great experience for my son.
August 10, 2018: All the staff was really nice, prepared and willing to help. My child was young (5yo), it was his first camp and he was a bit timid, the staff was willing to work with him to make sure he was participating and always encouraged him. We were impressed with the professionalism of the staff.

— Louise S. Parent
Second year and loved it more!

Loved being Challenged
August 10, 2017: My son loved being challenged by the older kids, it helped him to step up his game. The fact that the kids utilized the same type of drills that are utilized by adults was great practice for them to start preparing for the future steps ahead. We had a fantastic time. The coaching staff were great with all the kids.
— Nadine M. Parent
Third year in a row

— Mary K. Parent
Coaches were inspirational
"My son absolutely loved his week at NIKE baseball camp. We will be back next year. Coaches were inspirational, motivating and definitely great role models for these kids."
We Have Three Boys And Will Definitely Be Returning!
"My child was one of the younger kids and we were SO impressed with the way the instructors encouraged them and also encouraged the older kids to show good sportsmanship toward the younger ones. The camp was WONDERFUL. We are locals but I can't imagine sending my son to any other big campus camp that would measure up to this one! We have three young boys and will definitely be returning customers!!!"
Genuine, Knowledgeable Coaches
"My coach surpassed my expectations as a coach and as a person. He is very genuine and knowledgeable about the sport of baseball.
Better Appreciation For The Game
"They helped my son to appreciate the game of baseball on and off the field. I would highly recommend this camp to other ball players. I look forward to my son attending the camp next year with his little brother."
Quality Individual Attention
"I was impressed that the coaches worked with us individually. At other camps it was almost always as a group. They covered everything about baseball and even introduced me to some new strength training exercises. I enjoyed the camp very much."
My camper had a great time and really built some skills he will use on a team next Spring. My only recommendation would be more of these camps!
Great camp great coaches
I was amazed by the amount of kids encouraging each other. Some of the kids didn't speak English, but through the game my son made a friend and they communicated through high fives and nods. You would have sworn they knew what the other was saying. Great Camp and Great Coaches.
The councilors were uniformly terrific!
great positive energy
I love the high level of coaching skill and focus on both sportsmanship as well as baseball skills. I also love the positive energy and live for the game that my kids experienced! They loved the sliding drills! My daughter was one of only two girls but had an awesome time. Would be great to market to other girls in baseball. My 5 year old thought it was the best camp ever!
Instruction was great
Really enjoyed the camp. Coaches were great with all children, even though some of the other children were less than well behaved. Instruction was great. drills were great.
Was amazing experience enjoyed drills I've done before but with a twist and made healthy competive nature
my son loved the camp and I was very impressed with the staff. Unlike other sports camps he has done, all of the coaches were actually baseball players and really able to teach the sport. my only suggestion would be to have more equipment like batting helmets (small sizes). otherwise, great camp.
All of the coaches were excellent
I stayed a majority of the camp, to watch my son. He is 10. He had a great time. ALL of the coaches were excellent role models in my opinion. I look forward to my child attending more Nike camps thru Seattle University.
Looking forward to many more years
Greg and Jeff were amazing. Lars did the camp for two weeks this summer (currently in the second week) and this is the second year we have done it. Looking forward to many more years, a mini camp in the winter would be fun as well.
I loved going there. It was fun meeting everyone and plan on going again next year.
