Local attorney showers rising LSU football stars with NILs

College athletics are operating under an entirely new set of parameters since the legalization of name, image and likeness agreements (NILs) for amateur athletes. And with LSU football having caught fire as of late, one Louisiana businessman is helping several Tigers cash in.

With just one game left on the regular season schedule (this Saturday at Texas A&M) and a ticket already punched to represent the SEC West in the conference championship game, the LSU Football Tigers have found themselves rising steadily up the polls.

The Bayou Bengals moved up to #5 in the official College Football Playoff rankings this week. The top four make the tournament.

Injury attorney Gordon McKernan has taken notice and has hitched his advertising dollars to the team’s growing momentum.

McKernan posed with 10 standout members of Tiger Football for a recent ad, including quarterback Jayden Daniels and star linebacker Harold Perkins, who he also gave full shine to on a billboard spotlighting him.

McKernan isn’t limiting his budget to the gridiron though, or even Baton Rouge. He’s also sponsoring LSU women’s basketball star Alexis Morris and a number of Ragin’ Cajun athletes at the University of Louisiana.

And in the new landscape of the NCAA, boosters providing NIL agreements sponsoring top athletes in a school’s program will go a long way towards insuring the pipeline of new blood remains fertile.
