A quarterback for the football team and a homecoming royal, Dillon O’Connor is yet another prized athlete at Fillmore Central High School. O’Connor has been involved with football for as long as he can remember. His long standing commitment to the game led O’Connor to participate in the State Football event this year in the U.S. Bank Stadium. This historical football success for Fillmore Central also proved to be O’Connors most beloved memory. He explained that it was playing football with all his friends that made the state event his favorite high school memory.  Besides football, O’Connor has participated in boys basketball, baseball, FFA and TNT. 


Outside of high school, O’Connor enjoys playing sports and working on the farm.


After graduation, O’Connor will be attending Western Tech in LaCrosse to focus on carpentry, where he will also be part of the baseball team. 


O’Connor’s love for baseball and farming will continue past high school. Fillmore Central will always remember Dillon O’Connor’s major successes. As some final advice for the underclassmen, O’Connor disclosed this: “Take advantage of every opportunity.” 


“There are three things in life that are certain: death, taxes and dig, dig corner will always be open.
