Alexis Morris Renews NIL Deal Ahead of Tigers Women’s Basketball Season

McKernan and Morris look forward to continuing their partnership.

Guess who’s back?! We’re excited to share that Tigers women’s basketball star Alexis Morris has renewed her Name, Image, & Likeness (NIL) contract with our law firm.

In December 2021, Morris became the first Louisiana college athlete to sign a NIL deal with us. Since then, our partnership has proven to be an exciting endeavor. Together, we’ve teamed up to support the community at our annual Bike Giveaway, show appreciation for our employees by passing out game tickets, surprise Morris’ teammates with custom sneakers and more.

After nearly one year of partnering, we’ve demonstrated that our union exceeds that of a traditional business partnership. Sometime along the way, Morris started calling Gordon “Mr. Cool.”

During her recent visit to our main Baton Rouge office to renew her contract, Morris said:

“Thank you Mr. Cool [McKernan]. I really appreciate you for believing in me and believing in second chances. Without you, I wouldn’t be here today.”

Before making her way to the Tigers, Morris played college basketball for a handful of renowned universities. The No. 45 Lady Tigers point guard started her college basketball career at Baylor University with Coach Kim Mulkey before transferring to Rutgers, Texas A&M and eventually Louisiana State University. Since joining the Lady Tigers, Morris has taken Baton Rouge by storm with her unparalleled skill.

We remain grateful that Morris’ journey led her to Louisiana, and we look forward to seeing what’s in store for our renewed contract.
