Planters 'Shout For Nuts' Featuring Jim HarbaughUniversity of Michigan head football coach Jim Harbaugh has recently landed a new endorsement deal with the brand Planters, one of America’s favorite nut companies. The coach has openly been a long time major fan of Mr. Peanut and the Planters products, so it was a great collaboration and opportunity for him and the company. The Michigan coach was featured in a commercial where he was in a “Shout for Nuts” promotion that launched recently on March 21st around the country and showed him trying to get his voice at a loud enough decibel to make the peanuts fall out of a vending machine on their own. Over the next few weeks, be sure to keep an eye out for Harbaugh in his peanut advertisement.

Before he was a head coach, Harbaugh was also a football player for his university, Michigan, which he now coaches. He was selected in the first round of the 1987 NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears where he played from 1987-1993, and then until his final game on the field he also bounced between the Colts, Ravens, Chargers, Lions and Panthers. After retiring from being a player, Harbaugh immediately transitioned into a coaching career which he has been doing ever since. He is most recognized for having his NFL team play against his brother’s in the Super Bowl XLVII, ultimately conceding the win.

Harbaugh has just teamed up with the Planters brand to film a commercial featuring his love and passion for peanuts. The coach has always been a huge fan of their products, and so this was a genuine way for him to endorse one of his favorite snacks. Be sure to look for him on your screens in the near future.

Many Liberty students brought a pair of shoes to donate to their fundraiser, and thanks to Curry, the popular clothing brand Under Armour donated 1,000 pairs of children’s shoes that will be delivered this summer as a part of their trip to the DRC this summer.

The Akron, Ohio native is the son of former NBA player Dell Curry, and is considered to be one of the best shooters in the history of professional basketball. As a child, Curry’s father would take him and his brother Seth to basketball games and shoot hoops during warm ups, so it is absolutely clear that the sport has been in his life since he was born. In high school, Curry led his team to three national championships which gave him the opportunity to attend Davidson College on an athletic scholarship. He then entered the 2009 NBA draft where he was selected in the first round as the seventh overall pick by the Golden State Warriors with whom he still plays and thrives with today. The three-time NBA All-Star and 2015 NBA Champion has received a lot of praise and attention in the last year especially, and fans expect there will be lots more from him to come.
