Champ and I were team mates at HCJC in the fall of 1975. I will never forget the first time I met him. We had just arrived for two-a-days and as I was walking down the hall of the old dorm, i saw Champ at his door I guess unlocking it for the first time. I introduced my self as "Bob Washmon from Van, Texas". Champ responded that he was "Champ Dickerson from Pearland, Texas". I had never heard of Pearland before being a country boy from East Texas, so I said "Where in the heck is Pearland?" Then champ smiled and kind of chuckled and said "Well where in the heck is Van, Texas?" We had a good laugh and it showed me that Champ was a man of good humor and possessed a warm heart towards his fellow man. Champ had the hardest work ethic of anyone I have ever known and he was a fierce competitor. Though we had not stayed in touch through the years, I always had fond memories of him when I thought about HCJC and I was glad to see that he had made a name for himself with the Dallas Cowboys. I am saddened that we must carry on without Champ. The world is a worse place without him. But I look forward to the time when we will meet again with our Lord Jesus Christ in heaven. My sincerest condolences to the family and his friends. May God bless you all and bring you peace.

It was an honor and privilege to be a friend and teammate of Champ. He was a guiding light and inspiration for me when I first arrived to SMU the summer of 1977. A fearless competitor both on and off the field and a fun loving guy that everyone enjoyed being around. God bless you and your family. Rest in peace brother! Roy Douglas

Champ and I were roommates at SMU, He arrived from Henderson County junior college and I from Tyler junior college. In coming to SMU, I had never been around a football player like champ. We all know he was a great athlete, But his personal qualities were unique in that he was truly driven to be the best. If you ever trained with him you came away knowing that he was going to be special. Champ was in my wedding in 1984 and I was in his. We would reconnect over the years as he later moved to East Texas and spent time there. His kindness and free spirited mentality never changed. We love you" champ" and you will be missed.

Champ and I were team captains and inside linebackers at SMU. Not only was he possibly the best athlete I ever played with, Champ was one of the fiercest competitors EVER. Champ would never let anyone beat him in a sprint. One day we were out running sprints and a few of us devised a plan to "beat" Champ. We were running 20 reps of 40 yard sprints, and every sprint one of us would take off full speed, knowing Champ would not let us win. The plan was to wear him out in the early sprints, and then on the last few we would unleash another "fast" guy who had been laying back the whole time. Champ scorched us on every sprint. He won them all. He was totally gassed, but there was no way he would let someone beat him. He was amazing. When Champ arrived at SMU, I was the entrenched and celebrated LB. His arrival and fierce play made me elevate my game to a new level--he made me a better football player, and together we were as good a pair of inside LB's as there were in the country. Many of us lost track of Champ over the years, but I can promise the short time he was with us at SMU he made an impression. Rest in peace, Champ, as you truly were a Champion.

Uncles are often used to fill in the GAP for what is missing in your life. This only child never felt like she had anything missing... Uncle Champ was the best GAP brother, GAP dad, and the best PAL AROUND TOWN EVER!!! Never a dull moment. He was just "THAT UNCLE". I am deeply saddened for the loss Uncle Champ...

I am so sad to hear of the passing of Mr. Dickerson. I didn't know him personally, but I remember him from his days as a Dallas Cowboy. He will be missed by many of us old-school fans. Rest in peace "Champ".

Champ arrived at SMU just months before I graduated. His qualities were immediately apparent - on the field and off of the field. I am deeply saddened by his passing at much too young of an age.
