Derrick Anthony Dillon, Former WSU Football Player, Arrested in Bank Robbery

You know what sucks? Being a long-over-the-hill athlete by your early 30's. Just ask Derrick Anthony Dillon, a standout receiver and defensive back at Rogers High in Puyallup, a special teams player at WSU, and now, at age 32, an accused bank robber.

Dillon was arrested Wednesday in connection with a bank robbery earlier this month in Shoreline, reports The News Tribune. He's also a suspect in two other bank robberies, at a Bank of America in Milton on June 8 and a bank in Snohomish County on May 31, apparently with surveillance videos and other evidence linking him to the crimes.

None of the heists involved big money. The Shoreline robbery allegedly netted $3,400, and the Milton robbery $2,666. It's a shame, especially considering that Dillon, once listed by SuperPrep as among the top-20 high-school receivers in the nation, majored in criminal justice and psychology at WSU, with dreams of becoming an FBI agent.
