March 3, 2022—Pennzoil announced its first endorsements of three NCAA athletes.
In a press release, the company added endorsements of Indiana University basketball player Trayce Jackson-Davis, University of Michigan swimmer Maggie MacNeil, and Boston College lacrosse player Charlotte North. The students will receive a gift card to help cover the cost of vehicle maintenance, the release says.
“Trayce, Maggie, and Charlotte are seamless additions to our already impressive roster of athletes,” said Amanda Luce, Pennzoil global brand manager, in the release. “Their amazing accomplishments, diverse stories and commitment to peak performance help put Pennzoil in a whole new playing field. We are excited to see these student-athletes represent the brand through new platforms.”
A U.S. Supreme Court case in 2021 opened the door for college athletes to receive compensation for their names, images, and likenesses.
