Morgan Dent talks with former student-athlete and coach Jeff Watson on his take on the new law.

On October 30th, California Governor Gavin Newson signed the Fair Pay to Play Act into law, which allows college athletes to hire agents and be paid for endorsements. This law bypasses the longstanding NCAA ban on players’ receiving monetary benefits. After the California lawmakers came out with the pay to play law, this changed the game. 

The recent law passed in California has been a game-changer for the NCAA and student-athletes nationwide.

Sportscasters, athletes, sponsors and, here at Country Day, many students and coaches have opinions on this topic. Our reporter Morgan Dent investigates what might be next for student-athletes.
