Name, image and likeness entered the realm of American politics this week as a college quarterback shared his support for a local district attorney candidate. 

Tennessee-Martin senior Dresser Winn touted Colin Johnson as a good pick to be the District Attorney General for the 27th Judicial District of Tennessee. 

"Thank you to life-long supporter, and candidate for District Attorney General for the 27th Judicial District of Tennessee, Colin Johnson, for coming to my camp this weekend!" Winn wrote. "Elections are in August, so make sure you are registered to vote!"

According to CBS, Winn's endorsement is regarded as a first in college sports' new NIL environment. Winn currently has 1,303 followers on Twitter and 3,025 on Instagram.
