Athlete Advantage

Over the past year, the Founding members of the Conquest Collective (Manuel Hernandez & Jeff Mckay) have spoken with NIL companies across the country trying to find the best fit for a collective with hopes of becoming the gold standard in NIL. They looked all over the country to find the right company and ultimately landed on Athlete Advantage, an industry leading NIL marketing company,

The Lexington, KY based agency holds relationships with many of the top athletes in college sports and also manages collectives at the University of Kentucky and DePaul University. “If you look beyond the brand deal, NIL is providing us with the rare opportunity to educate and advocate for student-athletes in a way that wasn’t possible before. Our mission has always been to surround student-athletes with layers of protection, education, and service. That approach is what we are bringing to the Trojan family.” -Ryan Miller CEO Athlete Advantage.

Athlete Advantage will provide overall management, operational support, and compliance oversight for the collective.

Athlete Advantage works with student-athletes who have indicated they want to take advantage of NIL opportunities. Athlete Advantage has pioneered some of the most notable NIL deals and the agency is the preeminent NIL partner for student-athletes at the University of Southern California.

Hernandez and Mckay saw that Athlete Advantage had the correct model for NIL. The services that they offered were second to none. They saw that they were the original innovators in the NIL space in so many ways.

The company first set out to be a champion for student athletes and when universities learned their processes not only protected their student athletes but they also protected the universities and programs themselves, schools started to take notice.

We saw that they know how to be compliant per NCAA legislation while also making it a sustainable model that will work for years to come.
