Lamar Alexander says Money Paid to Student Athletes for Their Name, Image, Likeness Should Benefit All Student Athletes at that Institution

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – “Money paid to student athletes for use of their name, image, and likeness should benefit all student athletes at that institution,” Senate education committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) told a Senate hearing Tuesday, September 15th, 2020. “Student athletes should not be on the payroll and treated as hired hands.”

“I do not see a good ending to allowing a few student athletes to be paid by commercial interests while most of their teammates are not,” Alexander said. “If young athletes want to be a part of a team, enjoy the undergraduate experience, learn from coaches who are among the best teachers, and be paid a full scholarship that helps them earn a degree worth $1 million during their lifetime, their earnings should benefit all student athletes at that institution. If they prefer to keep the money for themselves, let them become professionals.”
