There have been a lot of eyes on the Nebraska women’s volleyball team this season. It all started when 91,000 people came to Memorial Stadium to watch a play.
The Cornhuskers’ volleyball star Lexi Rodriguez is now making money in the NIL market. She has signed a good deal with Panini America. Rodriguez made the news public on her X page.
This is Panini’s first job deal with a female player.
Rodriguez has a lot of fame in volleyball. As a freshman, she was named the AVCA Freshman of the Year, and now she is in her junior year at Lincoln.
There are also high hopes for the junior from Illinois because she was named to the All-Big Ten First Team unanimously as a sophomore.
Per Pete Nakos of On3, Rodriguez said she was excited about teaching the next generation when asked about the deal.
According to her, “I hope to inspire the young women of tomorrow with new ways of thinking.”That should account for the vast majority of my devotees.
That’s why I relish every opportunity I get to be the first female player to achieve anything new.
The website has the first Lexi Rodriguez trade card for Panini America, which is currently priced at $9.99.
After the NIL deal for the Cornhuskers star, there will be many more cards released. Rodriguez will have three different playing cards released.
