I don't like the buffet-style autograph events where it's impossible to make a real connection with the athlete. Hopefully an event like this will be an opportunity for kids to truly make a memory with a future NFL QB. He will go over routes with kids and throw passes with them...in addition to signing an autograph and taking a photo.
It's been really tough to nail HH down for an event. I've been working on this since the day after the bowl game. We won't start marketing it to the public for another week, but I wanted to share it here right away.

Someone send Little Nicky an invitation so he can see that Spyre is actually making their clients earn their money.
Hooker doesn't work with Spyre. That's why it was so hard to get him. He isn't doing many NIL events because he's been super focused on training and preparing for the season...which I respect.

That’s cool y’all were able to get him lined up. Folks should have a great time there. He seems like a top-notch guy. I’m glad to hear he’s locked in and avoiding too many off-the-field distractions. It would be tough to pass up a lot of the financial opportunities coming their way. I bet the extra work he’s putting in pays off on the field for him this fall.

As long as he beats Florida, Pitt, LSU, SC and Kentucky this year i support whatever he is doing.

I really do believe the UGA game is going to be a dawg fight. They lose a tonne of experience on defense. We will catch them out of position early and often.

I think this year's Bama team is going to be a juggernaut though. Too much a task to beat them unless Saban completely implodes mid season or something.

Just curious, how do you know?
I’ve had several conversations with people at Spyre. They sign guys to an event series deal, and Hendon is one of the athletes many athletes they’ve signed. So they definitely work with him, but the business model is different than a traditional marketing agent arrangement. It’s a way to utilize our guys to promote the collective and allow them to legally get paid. So money people pay to join the Volunteer Club, pays for the athletes and the events that the athletes will be at to interact with fans.

They also connect businesses with athletes they work with and don’t take a fee on those deals so the local business money goes directly to the athlete. I know that because I have connected them with a former client that I helped with their marketing.

Ok that seems to make sense
