In the new world of name, image, and likeness players are not only receiving revenue from sponsorship's and jersey sales, some are using their new income to give back — one of those players is Michigan quarterback J.J. McCarthy.
McCarthy has established the J.J. For the Kids Foundation, which gives back to kids in the Chicagoland area and Ann Arbor — the foundation has donated funds to various children’s hospitals in recent months.
And now McCarthy is giving back some more of his profits — this time from jersey and memorabilia sales via his partnership with the U of M affiliated M Den. McCarthy is giving his proceeds to a group of men that are very close to him, literally and figuratively. McCarthy will be giving this money to Michigan’s offensive line.
A little announcement, GO BUY McCarthy Jerseys from the MDen!!!Because… For every dollar I make from the jersey sales will be distributed to the true heroes, my offensive line! https://t.co/LpETYiLysn— J.J. McCarthy (@jjmccarthy09) March 16, 2022
“A little announcement, GO BUY McCarthy Jerseys from the MDen!!!,” McCarthy said on Twitter. “Because… For every dollar I make from the jersey sales will be distributed to the true heroes, my offensive line!”
McCarthy hasn’t even started a game for Michigan, but he continues to show his leadership abilities — it’s clear McCarthy likes to share his success with others.
