Player Managers

The player management of football players for The Conquest Collective will be handled by former Trojans George Farmer Jr. and Marcus Martin. 

George Farmer Jr : A former receiver and Los Angeles native, Farmer was a 5 star recruit and was the 11th ranked player in the 2011 class coming out of Junipero Serra High School. He played for coaches Lane Kiffin, Ed Orgeron, and Steve Sarkisian during his time as a Trojan from 2011-2014. He played 2 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks.

Marcus Martin:  A former offensive lineman and another Los Angeles native, Martin was a 3 star recruit out of Crenshaw High School. He played for coaches Lane Kiffin and Ed Orgeron during his time as a Trojan and was a 3 year starter at both center and guard from 2011-2013. He was selected in the 3rd round by the 49ers in the 2014 NFL Draft. He started 24 games with the 49ers from 2014-2016 and appeared in 3 games for the Lions and Patriots in 2020. 

As former Trojan’s who have been in the current athlete’s shoes, Farmer and Martin will be role models for current Trojan student athletes and great ambassadors for USC and The Conquest Collective


Education and Compliance: Player managers play a crucial role in educating athletes about the legal and ethical aspects of NIL rights. They provide comprehensive guidance on NCAA rules, state laws, and institutional policies to help athletes make informed decisions while avoiding potential pitfalls. Staying up-to-date with ever-changing NIL regulations is a top priority for these managers.

Brand Building and Strategy: A key responsibility of player managers is developing a comprehensive brand-building strategy for Trojan student athletes. They assist athletes in identifying and defining their personal brands, cultivating an authentic image, and establishing an online presence through social media platforms. These managers also help athletes align their brand messaging with potential endorsement opportunities.

Marketing: NIL player managers are active in brand exposure, sponsorship opportunities, and other marketing initiatives on behalf of Trojan student athletes. 

As former Men of Troy, our player managers are well equipped to provide athletes with the necessary guidance and expertise to navigate through the complex landscape of college sports. 

Stay tuned in the coming weeks/months for exciting announcements of additional player managers in other sports for Trojan student athletes.
