Athletes, coaches await NIL voting results by OHSAA member schools

The only thoughts Jenna Kopyar had on name, image and likeness regulations for most of the past year were of one of her best friends, who benefited almost immediately last summer when the NCAA allowed college athletes to monetize their talents to earn.

“I’m glad they passed it for college athletes. It’s an important thing because they can’t get real jobs, so it’s a chance for them to make money,” said Kopyar, a junior basketball standout at Dublin Coffman, referring to former Shamrocks star Jacy Sheldon, who, after two seasons with Ohio State’s women’s team, has a handful of endorsement deals. “I didn’t think about the possibility that it would come to high schools. I didn’t think that was an option for us.”
