Jeremy Dixon grew up on a steady diet of sports.

His high school years in Port St. Joe (Class of 1998) were spent on the baseball diamond and basketball hardwood.

And, so, Dixon recently arrived on an idea to celebrate all things athletic in Gulf County – a new magazine.

Dixon’s “Sidelines” premiered early this month, a full-color slick periodical to be published six times a year and focused on what happens on and off the field among the county’s athletes, from youth leagues to an alumni section for former high school athletes.

“The magazine is hitting on two things,” Dixon said. “What is happening on the field and what is going on outside the field.”

The magazine, which carries a newsstand price of $2, is available at several local outlets. Dixon plans to have web presence and mobile app in the coming months, aiming in part at parents of athletes.

Dixon played baseball and basketball as a teenager and matriculated to Carson-Newman College before transferring to Florida State University.
