WSGW OnLine Poll for YOU: NIL for Michigan High School Athletes
For the past couple years, college athletes have been able to earn money from the use of their name, image, and likeness. A state lawmaker has unveiled a bill to allow high school athletes to do the same.
This would be done with oversight from the MHSAA as certain product associations would not be allowed. It’s expected only a handful of athletes may benefit.
Possible opportunities could include an online presence or product endorsement.
