Westside golfer Kaitlyn Hanna signs NIL deal with Superberries

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – Five months after signing her national letter of intent to play golf in Iowa, Westside High School senior Kaitlyn Hanna had her second day of signing, this time putting pen to paper on his first name, image and likeness agreement.

“Anyone can really accept a NIL deal and you put your face and your name on a brand and you can really put your name there. So I think it’s cool that we all have the opportunity to do,” Hanna said.

Westin Foods and Superberries CEO Scott Carlson said: “Everyone is in the business of name and image and likeness on some level, except athletes when they went to school where they really couldn’t enjoy it until this Supreme Court decision.

The two-time state champion has a high school career filled with breaking records, including scoring the lowest women’s golf score in NSAA history with a 63, holding ten Westside golf records and being named a player. of the Year 2021 from the Nebraska Golf Association.

Hanna’s contract with Superberries includes social media promotions as well as business mentorship for the elder’s new company, Tee Art Creations.

“It’s an opportunity for a company to get to know a winner, someone who does something in high school – it all starts in high school. Kaitlyn has been giving back since her debut. She started a girls’ golf camp. She’s an A student. She’s a great golfer. I mean what’s not to like about Kaitlyn Hanna,” Carlson said.

While Hanna moves to Iowa, Westside will still be where it all began. The Warrior’s indoor golf course, The Swede Center, is even home to Hanna’s original Tee Art installation.

“Westside has done so much for me in school and in athletics, so I feel like I can represent the ‘W’ wherever I go and on the golf course can compete with other schools and other players. I think just wearing that W on my chest when I go out and play is something I’ll always be proud of,” Hanna said.
