blake bortles endorsementJacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has high hopes for the 2014 season, and is currently busy shaping the team that he’ll lead on to the gridiron this fall. But while he continues to work hard on the field, he’s also scoring endorsement deals off the field. On Monday, August 18 it was announced the Bortles has signed his first local endorsement deal with Audi of Jacksonville.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it will no doubt add to the four-year, $20.6 million deal he’s already signed with the Jaguars. As a part of the deal Bortles will be endorsing Audi of Jacksonville and the A8 luxury care in a commercial ad campaign.

“Blake is a very great guy and he’s a great ballplayer,” said Jack Hanania, CEO of Hanania Automotive Group in Jacksonville. “We see a lot of potential with Blake and we did a sponsorship deal with him. The good thing about Blake is he’s driving an A8 and he loves the car. We’ll get with our advertising agency and we’ll do some great spots for our company.”

Bortles was the first quarterback picked in this year’s draft and has had a lot of success in the early preseason for the Jags, throwing for a combined 18 of 28 and 277 yards. A UCF product, Bortles solidified himself as a winner in college by leading the Knights to a victory in the 2012 Beef ‘O’ Brady’s Bowl and in the 2013 Tostitos Fiesta Bowl.

Jamal Crawford AppearanceLos Angeles Clippers guard Jamal Crawford is heading into his 15th NBA season, so his recent trip back to Rainier Beach High School was essentially a full circle experience. As he stood in the gym and looked at pictures of his early NBA days he couldn’t help but reminisce on the good times and the bad, and on how far he’s come since his high school days and even since his rookie year.

Never one to forget where he’s come from, Crawford paid to refurbish the school’s gym when he returned a few years ago and noticed that hit had become unsafe to play in. He also continues to finance the “Seattle Pro-Am” at Seattle Pacific University each summer and donates the proceeds to local charities. For Crawford, it’s really just about giving back ad helping people.

“I’m literally living a dream,” he said. “To see something grow, see people grow, and people you’ve helped over the way is pretty cool. If i’m remembered as just a basketball player, I didn’t do enough. Being a basketball player is one thing, but being a better person is way more important.”

Crawford is a two-time NBA Sixth Man of the Year, including winning last year’s award, and holds the NBA record for four-point plays. He’s played for the Chicago Bulls, New York Knicks, Golden State Warriors, Atlanta Hawks, Portland Trail Blazers, and most recently with the LA Clippers. Health permitting, he hopes to play four or five more years in the league and then continue to help people in his post basketball career.

michael irvin speakingNFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin spoke at Pinon Hills Community Church in Farmington, New Mexico on Sunday, August 17.

“I don’t believe it is possible to make it without a relationship with God,” he said. “Especially if you have a responsibilities of a family.”

Maurice ClarettFormer Ohio State star Maurice Clarett took the time to speak players at the University of Notre Dame on Sunday, August 17. Clarett’s fall from grace over the last decade was well-chronicled, but now he’s using his experiences as an opportunity to help other players who might identity with his situation.

“I love speaking to the young ballplayers an sharing my story and what it is I ‘wish I knew’ then,” he said. “I love being connected with the game.”

Clarett spent one season at Ohio State, rushing for 1,237 yards while scoring 18 touchdowns in helping the Buckeyes win the 2002 BCS National Championship. However, he was dismissed from the program after one season, becoming a center of a scandal involving improper benefits. He went on to become a third round pick of the Denver Broncos in 2005 but was released prior to the season.

Despite Clarett’s past transgressions he has made his way back into the light and become a sought after motivational speaker. His story of overcoming adversity to regain balance in his life and the lessons he learned from all he went through as a collegiate and professional athlete make him a valuable resource for college athletes like those at Notre Dame.

Jason CollinsNBA player Jason Collins made an appearance at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco, California on Monday, August 11 as a part of the Commonwealth Club’s “The LGBT Journey” series. During his appearance, Collins discussed his journey to becoming the first openly gay man to play in the NBA.

“I wish I would have come out earlier, it would have saved me a lot of sleepless nights,” said Collins. “However, I don’t think people should be forced to come out, because it can be harmful for them and others. People should come out when they are ready to take that step.”

Collins has become an inspiration to gay athletes around the world since coming out last year and then playing in the NBA for the Brooklyn Nets. But it goes beyond sports. Collins has served as an example for all gay men and women by displaying courage and confidence in who he truly is.
