Three HBCU Athletes Sign NIL Management Deal With Black-Owned Firm, Jefferson Sports Enterprise

Jefferson Sports Enterprise (JSE) has added three additional Division 1 HBCU athletes to its roster. Mississippi Valley State University students Jamari Jones, Cameron Gardner, and Shelby Carson have all agreed to be represented by the firm.

Marc Jefferson, the company’s founder and CEO, founded it in California. Jefferson attended Mississippi Valley State University (MVSU) before joining the United States Air Force. His mission is to assist sportsmen in obtaining the appropriate endorsements, appearances, and other NIL-related possibilities that match their personality and style of play. According to Jefferson, it is critical for clients to grasp what NIL is and is not, as well as to assist them in navigating new prospects.

Jamari Jones, a Fannin native, plays quarterback for MVSU. He was named HBCU Sports Preseason SWAC Newcomer of the Year. Prior to attending MVSU, Jones was a JUCO All American (East Mississippi Community College), two-time Academic All American, and has played on undefeated teams since his high school days as a Conference Champion Northwest Rankin Cougar.

Cameron Gardner has transitioned from wide receiver to tight end for MVSU this upcoming season. He is looking to showcase his offensive talents in the new position. Born and raised in Starkville, Cameron started as a Starkville Raider (youth football), and eventually was part of the 6A State Championship team as a Yellowjacket (Starkville High School).

Shelby Carson is a rising senior at MVSU. She plays short stop and third base. The Raymond native was named All-SWAC second team in the 2022 season and currently ranks 46th in the NCAA in triples per game. If you would like Shelby to endorse your business or product.

“Each of these individuals are outstanding athletes,” says Jefferson. “They know that JSE will promote their individuality and find companies that match who they are as a person.” Jefferson says that JSE’s family-oriented culture is one that supports each athlete as they balance academics, sports, and endorsement deals.
