Walk-Ons Sports Bistreaux has been doing the “walk-on of the week” since college athletes were allowed to capitalize on their Name, Image and Likeness.
This has allowed Walk-Ons to be awarded scholarships from founder and CEO Brandon Landry, who was a former walk-on himself.
Well, Brandon paired up with Purdue and NFL Great Drew Brees, awarded this week to softball Walk-On and Local Lafayette Native, Emilee Cox with the award.
As Emilee is sitting in Drew Brees Hall, speaking to Brandon, Drew comes on to chat as well. It had to be an absolutely surreal moment for a Purdue Athlete who has been a Boilermaker since Birth.
Great Work by Brando and Drew on this. Congratulations, Emilee. Have a great year at Purdue!
