Alabama Softball Ace Announces New NIL Deal
Alabama softball star Montana Fouts has announced a new sponsorship with Summit Stands, a shop that sells hunting treestands and accessories.
"Y’all know that whether I’m on the field or in the woods, I’m always working on elevating my game! That’s why I’m so excited to announce an exclusive offer with @summitstands, the leaders in climbing and hang-on treestands for my other favorite season," said Fouts in an Instagram post.
Summit Stands joins the list of NIL deals that Fouts has acquired since the NCAA put its Name, Image and Likeness Policy into effect in July of 2021, giving student-athletes the opportunity to make money off of their names and brands.
Some of the deals Fouts has received, include Boombah, Cameo, Pure Country Automotive Outlet, BamaStuff, H&R Block, and made her own brand called "Be the Blessing," just to name a few.
The Team 26 member has had a busy summer as she helped Team USA win gold last month in the 2022 World Games in Birmingham, Ala. She has also held multiple softball camps in Ky., and West Va., for school-aged girls who play softball.
According to its website, Summit Stands, "are carefully engineered to be the most silent, secure, comfortable, and concealed hunting treestands on the market. From versatile climbing treestands to adaptable tripod stands, all of our treestands are built to last... At Summit we know what it takes to make quality products. We don’t just build ‘em, we use ‘em. We don’t build stands that we think will work; we build stands that we know will work."
Fouts announced in May that she will be returning to Team 27 for her final softball season.
