Dickson Puts in the Work to Earn Division I Opportunity

Jonah Dickson didn’t get really serious about playing competitive tennis until age 14. The Pacific Palisades native assumed he was athletic enough to eventually earn a spot on a Division I college roster.

Jonah Dickson Has Committed to Boston University

“But once I started playing more and more tournaments in SoCal, I realized how far behind I was compared to everybody else,” Dickson said. “I realized how much better guys were than me and they weren’t even going to the top, top schools. I thought, ‘Wow. I really had to put in some work.’”

Dickson dedicated more hours to the court and gradually improved. The four-star senior caught the attention of Boston University coaches Dejan Stankovic and Jesse Frieder, and committed to the Terriers last month.

“Coach Frieder got to know my family really well and we had a really strong connection,” Dickson said. “He really made an attempt to get to know my parents, and at Clay Courts this year he saw my grandparents watching me and went up and talked to them. That made a big impression on me. He was always checking in to see how everything was going.”
