Lafayette personal injury law firm Gordon McKernan Injury Attorneys has signed Name, Image, & Likeness (NIL) deals with UL football players Andre Jones and Dontae Fleming. After finding success with his LSU NIL deals, Gordon McKernan has extended the NIL deals to UL’s football players.
When asked about the NIL deals, McKernan said, “I’m thrilled to partner with these talented Lafayette student-athletes. With our presence throughout most of Louisiana, it’s been my intention to find partners across many Louisiana universities. I’m thrilled to start that process at UL with Andre and Dontae.”
Jones, a redshirt senior outside linebacker, has demonstrated that dedication reaps reward. During the 2020 season, Jones earned a season-high seven tackles in the team’s win against Appalachian State. In 2019, Jones not only played in all 14 games of the season, but he also started in nine of the 14.
Before joining the Ragin’ Cajuns, Laplace native Fleming was a highly sought-after athlete who received offers from Memphis, Arkansas State, and ULM. Now, the sophomore wide receiver has proven that he made the right call by committing to UL. During his freshman season, Fleming had the fourth highest yardage on the team.
