While the athletics calendar year is nearing an end, the victories continue to come in, as the Ole Miss Sports Productions team won two Emmy awards on June 6 in Atlanta at the Southeast Regional Emmy Awards.

Ole Miss Sports Productions picked up Emmys in the Daily or Weekly Program (sports) category for The Season: Ole Miss Football, and the Photographer – Program (Non-News)/Short-Form category for this Program Photographer Short-Form Composite. The pair of awards gives Ole Miss Sports Productions five Emmys over the past two years.

“This is definitely a testimony to the hard work our student-athletes, coaches and administration put in,” said Micah Ginn, associate athletics director for sports productions and creative services. “We are documenting an incredible time here at Ole Miss, and we are honored to have that opportunity.”

Chris Sabo, producer/director of The Season, noted that teamwork led to the accolades.

“It is an extreme honor to be recognized with the top media professionals in our region,” Sabo said. “It is a culmination of months of preparation, persistence and good old-fashioned hard work. The Season: Ole Miss Football is a department-wide undertaking; everyone has their hands in it in some way. I am extremely proud of the way that we are able to consistently come together to create high-quality content as a team. “

Lassiter, another producer/director for Ole Miss Sports Productions, also thanked the Ole Miss family for the continued support.

“It’s a great honor to be named among the industry’s top professionals, but it doesn’t happen without the student-athletes, fans and administration at Ole Miss,” Lassiter mentioned. “We are fortunate to work alongside talented and driven professionals every day, whose efforts are reflected in these awards.”
