Hanford Dixon (born December 25, 1958 in Mobile, Alabama) is a former professional American football cornerback who played his entire career (1981-1989) for the Cleveland Browns of the NFL. Dixon made the Pro Bowl three times, in 1986, 1987 and 1988. He was drafted by the Browns out of The University of Southern Mississippi with the 22nd pick in the first found of the 1981 NFL Draft. He also is credited with naming the Cleveland Browns "Dawg Pound," the section of the stadium known for their antics during Browns home games at the old Municipal Stadium inspired by Dixon's "barking" to teammates, especially fellow cornerback Frank Minnifield. Hanford Dixon is married and has two sons Kyle and Hanford Jr, and two daughters Merci and Hanna.

Dixon and his wife of 19 years, Hikia, remain a visible presence on the football front in Cleveland as well.

He is pregame TV host (along with Chuck Galetti, Reggie Langhorne and Bob Golic) on WOIO's Browns Tailgate 19, and serves as radio analyst for the Cleveland Gladiators arena league team. He manages his non-profit organization, "Right Path Foundation", with his wife Hikia, who is the Master Instructor and Black Belt Sensei along with executive director of www.rightpathmartialarts.com.
