COLUMBUS, Ohio Ohio State sophomore defender Cassie Dickerson will be featured throughout the 2008-09 season on a Big Ten Network “faces of the Big Ten” promotional series entitled “Big Life. Big Stage. Big Ten.”
Dickerson, from Kalamazoo, Mich. and a graduate of Kalamazoo Central High School, is among 12 Ohio State student-athletes and more than 100 Big Ten Conference student-athletes who are part of the campaign. The purpose of the promotion is to share the personalities and unique stories of current Big Ten student-athletes so that the Big Ten community can learn about these individuals, and by association, learn about the Big Ten brand overall.
The 10-person crew from the Big Ten Network set up a lighted, backdrop studio inside the Schottenstein Center earlier this week. Dickerson spent only a moment in the BTN make-up chair before taking her seat under the lights. She was interviewed for about 25 minutes with the director calling for numerous camera angles throughout the shoot.
“This was a lot harder than I expected it would be,” said Dickerson. “And it was hot under the lights.”
The 30-second commercials will air this school year on the Big Ten Network and include still images and video highlights.
