EMILY VILLERE DIXON
Emily Dixon is a sports administrator and reporter living in Baton Rouge, La. She currently serves as the Coordinator of Offensive Operations for the LSU Football Team and is a multimedia reporter for LSUsports.net, the university’s official sports website. Dixon works closely with the team’s offensive coordinator and all offensive position coaches regarding game day preparation, travel and a variety of daily tasks. She also works in the recruiting department working with LSU Head Coach Ed Orgeron and other recruiting personnel for unofficial and official visits, special events and game days.
Dixon created her position with LSUsports.net and is the first female reporter on the website. Her reporting duties include weekly interviews with Ed Orgeron, current student-athletes and former Tigers in the NFL, such as Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, Odell Beckham, Jr., Jarvis Landry and more.
Dixon also edits special features for the website throughout the year, including a viral video from LSU’s 2015 Media Day that has more than four million views. She is part of Cox Sports Television’s LSU GameDay Live, which airs throughout the LSU football season. Her role includes campus interviews on game days and features on different aspects of the team from behind the scenes.
Prior to working at LSU, Dixon worked for Scout.com covering LSU athletics, including the Tigers’ 13-0 football season in 2011. She also covered the 2012 BCS National Championship for FOXsports.com, the 2012 Final Four in New Orleans and multiple other sporting events in the Southeast.
Before working for FOX, Dixon served as a sports anchor and reporter at KNOE-TV in Monroe, La., where she would shoot, edit, produce and anchor weekly sportscasts covering dozens of high school sports and colleges, including Louisiana Tech, University of Louisiana-Monroe and Grambling State University.
Dixon graduated from LSU in 2009 with her bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism from the Manship School of Mass Communication. In 2016, she received her master’s degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Sport Management.
ABOUT THE BLOG
I started this blog as a way to share my life as a woman working in sports, while also combining my other interests of playing dress-up, wellness and all things Louisiana. It is a sort of a melting pot of everything that makes me, me – from my life in football to my personal style and anything else that might pop into my head.
Working is a big part of my life, but there is always the challenge of balancing football with family, friends and a social life. On this blog I share tips and ideas – from sideline style and resume reels to learning how to work in a male dominated career and preparing for gameday – that I hope can help other young women looking to find out what they want to pursue in life.
All styling and opinions on this blog are my own. I have the opportunity to work with some fabulous local brands and services, and I will always let you know when an item or service has been given to me by labeling it [c/o].
You can read more about why I started this blog in my welcome letter here!
I am the youngest of five children and grew up outside of Houston in The Woodlands, Tx. I live in Baton Rouge with my husband, Shea, and our three dogs – Chuy and Gracie (two sassy and stubborn dachshund twins) and Jones (the most well-behaved pound puppy/deer mix). I have worked in sports for over 10 years now but was never an athlete myself…like ever; not even youth soccer. After college I started running and have now run six half marathons from the East Coast to the West Coast. I love football and have a borderline unhealthy obsession with puppies, Bravo and Chick-Fil-A.
