County sports focus for new magazine

Having studies economics at FSU and with a sales background, Dixon said, “He hit the ground running” in promoting his magazine.

“The county has such a rich history of sports,” Dixon said. “I grew up playing sports. The first thought I had about the magazine was pictures.”

Dixon wanted to provide a format for “full-colored, vibrant” pictures that “athletes would want to keep.”

Those photos, he added, would also attract parents seeking to secure memories of their child’s exploits on the fields of play.

“I wanted something that puts athletes on the front cover,” Dixon said.

The magazine will profile players and teams competing in county athletes and will also include a section celebrating those athletes who have advanced beyond high school and became standouts in college or even the professional ranks.

“Putting it all together, making it concise, that will be the learning curve,” Dixon said. “As with anything new it will take time. But a year from now I’d like it to be something that readers look forward to it and for it to have enough notoriety that people want to be in it.”
