TENNESSEE TRYING TO PASS LAW TO PAY PLAYERS

Some Tennessee lawmakers think it is time for college athletes to get paid. Now, they are pushing a bill that would allow college athletes to benefit. Sen. Kelsey and Rep. Antonio Parkinson hope to see college athletes benefit from playing sports. One bill would allow division 1 athletes to profit off their likeness like professional athletes.“They could hire you and say, ‘hey you are going to be our spokesman and we are going to put your name and face up on the board’,” said Sen. Kelsey HB 1710 calls for creating a grant for student athletes. 1% of athletic earnings from a university would be put into a trust. Athletes unable to go pro could apply for a grant up to $50,000. “The NCAA is an organization and they have their rules, but none of the rules of the NCAA trump state law,” said Rep. Parkinson.
