Vanderbilt All-SEC Selection Cam Johnson Leveraging New NCAA Name-Image-Likeness Policy as Opportunity to Give Back
Nashville star launches branded t-shirt line and will dedicate all September sales to area partners of the National Down Syndrome Society.
For Immediate Release: September 3, 2021
Nashville, TN – Today, Cam Johnson, Vanderbilt Commodores senior and one of 2020’s most productive wide receivers in college football, announced the launch of cambjohnson.com to sell t-shirts with his new personal brandmark with proceeds benefitting the National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS).
Said Johnson, “Student athletes now have an unprecedented opportunity to create new revenue sources for themselves. While a handful of college football’s premiere players at a handful of elite programs have a chance to really cash in, every college athlete – regardless of stature or sport – has a chance to use his or her platform to give back in a meaningful way. I see NIL as a means to build relationships and define one’s purpose.”
Over the past several years, former Commodore and NFL running back Zac Stacy has hosted his All-Star Clinic for National Down Syndrome Day at Vanderbilt. Through participation in the program, Johnson found a passion for helping disabled youth and members of the Downs Syndrome community.
“The joy I found volunteering at the clinics mirrors that which I feel when I hit paydirt on Saturdays,” Johnson said. “I hope these efforts are just the beginning and that others will follow suit in going the extra mile and making a difference in their communities.””
Johnson will run a presale throughout the month of September with all proceeds going to Tennessee-based NDSS chapters. To make a purchase and for more information, visit cambjohnson.com.
