Your support is greatly appreciated and will benefit our football student-athletes in this new landscape of college athletics. With the advent of Name, Image, Likeness (NIL) the opportunities to galvanize our fanbase and educate our players has been mutually beneficial. Charitable offerings involving our players around State College and the region have drastically increased, in many cases eclipsing fundraising milestones for nonprofit and their causes.
The opportunity for our players to connect with alumni, donors organizational leadership and CEOs has been transformational for our players and individuals and CEOs alike. Relationships and networking opportunities have proven to be pivotal in our players personal and academic journeys thus far. Building life long relationships for personal and educational gains, internships and mentor/mentee relationships are by products this new landscape has ushered in. Lastly, Coach Franklin has also placed a high priority on financial education for his players.
Name, Image and Likeness have allowed us to dive deeper into financial literacy and educate our players on allocation, taxes and budget management. Your support is needed and appreciated to help us maintain and stay competitive in this new college football landscape.
