Reese’s Signs Reese-Named College Athletes to NIL Deals

This college football season is already off to an epic start. And what better way to win this season than to add Reese's chocolate and peanut butter Footballs into the mix. You can find this season's go-to snack at your tailgates, locker rooms and—of course—stores across the country. What better way to celebrate than signing the best-named players in college football to Team Reese?

The football coaches at Reese's University have been hot on the recruiting trail. Reese's University Department of Intercollegiate Athletics (Go Fighting Cuppies!) is offering the tastiest and most exclusive NIL contract in history by signing 12 college football athletes with the last name "Reese." Our Reese-named team players are getting every player and fan's dream contract, including Reese's Footballs and cups for the season and drip-worthy gear simply for having the best last name in the game:

  • Reese's Reese Chain: An ambassadors-only gold chain and pendant
  • Custom Game Day Blazer: A custom-tailored blaze orange Team Reese travel blazer
  • Cup-links: A pair of custom cufflinks in the legendary cup shape
  • Football Locker Fridge: A mini fridge custom-made to fit into a locker to keep Reese's Footballs at the perfect temperature

"If anyone knows what snack in college football is the best, it's going to be this team of athletes and it's going to be Reese's Footballs," said Reese's athletic director, PB Letterman. "Like I always say, the name on the front of the jersey is very important, but the name on the back can be great too."

From our signed freshmen to our seniors, each Team Reese player has some envious contract perks for their teammates to literally drool over, including their own overflowing Reese's Football-filled fridge, sure to make each Team Reese player the locker room favorite.

Supporters and players alike can join in on the epic season and live vicariously through the fan-favorite Reese team by purchasing their own Reese's Footballs. The iconic chocolate and peanut butter flavors take shape to form a football and make for a hype-worthy snack to bring to the next big game.
