State Sen. Ricky Hill (R-Cabot) has filed a invoice to forestall state-funded medical colleges from spending cash on the title, picture and likeness of student-athletes.
Avid watchers of faculty athletics have seen loads of TV advertisements from the College of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, that includes Arkansas Razorbacks similar to soccer participant Jalen Catalon, basketball participant Nick Smith, Jr. and others.
Hill occurs to be a graduate of Arkansas State College and even based the ASU Rodeo Membership earlier than occurring to compete on the skilled rodeo circuit.
Right here’s what Hill’s campaign site says:
Whereas at ASU, Ricky based the ASU Rodeo Membership and competed as a bull rider on the ASU Rodeo workforce. This led to him becoming a member of the Skilled Rodeo Cowboys Affiliation and competing on the skilled rodeo circuit for 4 years. Throughout this time, he married his spouse Cynthia who was knowledgeable barrel racer.
We don’t recall seeing any UAMS advertisements that includes athletes from Arkansas State or every other Arkansas college for that matter.
UAMS Well being is the official orthopaedics and sports activities medication supplier for Razorback athletics and offers each day medical protection all 19 Razorback athletic packages, in response to the UAMS Well being web site.
Hill’s invoice is Senate Bill 456.
Right here’s the UAMS advert with Catalon:
