WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — One goes by 'Big O' or 'Little O' depending on which teammate you ask.
The other goes by 'Cel.'
Omarion Dixon and Marcel Atisso are really close friends.
"I got his back and he got mine," Dixon said.
But the two seniors are completely different running backs in terms of style.
"It's like a combo," Dixon said. "It's like a package. You get speed and finesse and then you get speed and strength."
"I have speed," Atisso added. "He has power. We both do things in the pass game so it's just hard to plan for us. One time we'll go inside with [Dixon] and then we'll go outside with me or we'll throw it in the air."
While Dixon and Atisso run differently, they form a formidle 1-2 punch in Harrison's offense.
In fact, they combined for four individual program records last season. Dixon rushed for a program-best 1,642 yards while Atisso averaged a school-record 10.1 yards a carry.
"Honestly, there's some things you could list on your gameplan but you're not going to be able to hold them either way because once they get going there ain't no stopping them, senior wide receiver Zion King said."
Atisso is currently recovering from a torn ACL he suffered at the end of the last season. He's doubtful for the Raiders' season opener against Terre Haute South on Friday.
That's alright with head coach Terry Peebles.
The last thing Peebles wants to do is rush Atisso back.
Harrison is aiming for its third straight sectional championship and it will need a healthy Dixon and Atisso down the stretch to make that happen.
"When you have a guy as physically dominant as Omarion — he's the most physical player we've had in my seven years here," said Peebles. On the other side you have Marcel who's probably the most skilled player we've had in seven years here. To have them both on the same team, in the same class is definitely a luxury. A team can try and take away one but generally it's hard to take away both. I wouldn't like to be a defensive coordinator going into that matchup."
