SRS Distribution Inc., one of the nation’s leading distributors of roofing and building products, announced it had expanded its Texas A&M partnership to include a Name, Image and Likeness Deal with starting quarterback and 2022 Freshman All-American Conner Weigman.
SRS said the agreement, announced on Sept. 1, continues the company’s long-standing relationship with the land-grant university in College Station, Texas, making the many former Aggies in its employment ranks likely pleased.
“We could not be prouder to partner with such an accomplished athlete as Conner; his commitment to his team as well as his character — both on and off the playing field — exemplifies our company’s culture,” said CEO Dan Tinker, also a Texas A&M University graduate.
“This agreement solidifies our unwavering support of the Texas A&M Aggies, college football and the talented young leaders that call College Station home,” Tinker added.
The Aggies kicked off the 2023 season on Saturday, Sept. 2, at home against the New Mexico Lobos. According to the Associated Press, Weigman threw for 236 yards and a career-high five touchdowns, rolling to a 52-10 victory over New Mexico. Texas A&M's 52 points were the most the team has scored against an FBS opponent in the regular season since a 74-72, seven-overtime victory over LSU on Nov. 24, 2018.
SRS said it would be the presenting sponsor of the team’s Military Appreciation programs throughout the football season at Kyle Field; the company is engaged in a multi-year relationship with the Aggies through LEARFIELD, an athletics multimedia rightsholder for nearly 200 college properties across the U.S.
That sponsorship, along with the NIL partnership with Weigman, gives SRS broad exposure in its support of Texas A&M and, the company says, strengthens its ongoing commitment to recruit both former Texas Aggies as well as veterans in the workforce.
In addition to the Weigman and Texas A&M partnerships, SRS Distribution’s college sponsorship portfolio includes title sponsorship of the SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl and relationships with the Duke Blue Devils, North Carolina Tar Heels, Penn State Nittany Lions, and the iconic Red River Rivalry at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
