We're celebrating athletes whose senior seasons have abruptly ended.

WXYZ Senior Salutes: We are asking for your senior year sports stories for our Brad Galli and Justin Rose to highlight on TV.

Brother Rice hockey captain DJ Dixon helped lead the team to the state semifinals. A second generation student at Brother Rice, Dixon was looking to stamp his legacy on the school with a state title.

He was one of the top players in the state all season - before the MHSAA halted all events in light of the coronavirus outbreak.

Dixon certainly put his stamp on Rice and its community.

DJ, we salute you!

Kudos to ESPN's Scott Van Pelt for leading the way in calling for these stories. Our producer Megan Garagiola thought we could showcase some in metro Detroit to share on our platforms.
