GS athletes capitalize under new NIL rules

A handful of Georgia Southern athletes began signing on with companies, profiting off of their name, image and likeness after the NCAA’s new ruling in July.

Eagle quarterback Sam Kenerson agreed to numerous deals within the first week of the new rules being introduced and invites more.

Kenerson partnered with Yoke Gaming, Original Ugly, Red Stick Sports, KeepGrindinYouth, WatchMeWerk Apparel and Lavish Life Sneakers.

Linebacker Todd Bradley-Glenn took the opportunity to launch his construction business, Bradley-Glen Construction, LLC. Among Glenn’s primary services is television mounting and cable management, although he has completed many other jobs.

Fellow linebacker Benz Josue launched his personal photography business, SwayVisionz, LLC.

“I want SwayVisionz to be a brand that influences and inspires people to believe in their vision and keep pushing forward,” read his mission statement. “Also… to sway means to influence or gain authority, meaning dominance, and being a leader, and having the desire to dominate everything that you do. Being a winner.”

Josue practices both photography and videography and is available for booking on his website.

Defensive lineman Gavin Adcock has used the new NIL rules to jumpstart his music career.

Adcock has released multiple songs and performed at Southern Social in Statesboro.

Offensive lineman Logan Langemeier, Anthony Beck and Alex Raynor, along with Adcock and Glenn agreed to become Barstool Athletes.

The George-Anne reached out to all the athletes mentioned for comment, but has not yet received any responses.
