UCF® Football Standout, Big Kat Bryant, Tackles NIL Partnership with Local Apparel Company and UCF® Licensee, Alpha Authentics
Oviedo, Florida (August 4, 2021) – Big Kat Bryant, a Defensive Lineman and graduate transfer from Auburn, has entered a partnership to monetize his name, image and likeliness (NIL) with an Oviedo, FL apparel company with ties to UCF® reaching all the way back to 1969, when it was known as FTU.
“Ryan at Alpha reached out to me and I knew something was different about him. He genuinely wants to help me build my Big Kat brand and look out for my best interest. He shared some of his ideas and I said, Let’s do it.”, says Bryant.
Bryant priorities are God, family and football. Alpha Authentics has used this as inspiration for Big Kat’s updated logo and apparel designs, which can stay with him for his last year of college football at UCF and beyond.
“We really like Big Kat – he’s everything the Alpha Authentics brand stands for. Leadership, character, integrity, determination, and good ethics. You can spend one minute with Big Kat and understand he’s a quality person. We’re excited he’s partnered with us and we will support him however we can, on or off the field…now and in the future, says Alpha Authentics owner Ryan Jessee.
Coach Gus Malzahn in a recent interview said, “He’s [Bryant] got leadership ability. He’s a hard worker and I believe he’s earned the respect of his teammates in a short period of time and that didn’t surprise me at all."
The first collection of Bryant’s apparel will be available in August 2021 on the Alpha Authentics website.
