Who said the NIL era is all bad?

Yeah, we hear the “business is business” stories, we see the student-athletes flexing their cash, but sometimes, we see the heartwarming side of name, image and likeness (NIL) money. Just take Iowa State quarterback Rocco Becht, for example, who is using his own money to give back to kids in Iowa.

Along with the “We Will Collective,” Becht made the announcement Wednesday that he will be hosting a youth football camp for kids between fifth-eighth grade. The camp will take place July 13 in Perry, Iowa. (RELATED: Oh No: Deion Sanders Drops Rap Song And It’s Absolutely Atrocious)

Joined by other football players from the Iowa State program, Becht will be forking out his own money for each child that wants to be involved. On top of that, he will also be paying for every camper’s lunch.

“The state of Iowa and our community has given so much love to me and my family, and we wanted to find a way to give back,” said Rocco. “Perry has gone through so much in the past year and this was a small way to show support and provide a fun day for the kids in Perry.”

If you don’t know, Perry went through a high school shooting back in January that killed one and injured seven, so it’s awesome to see Becht help with the recovery process.
