WINSTON-SALEM, NC  – Roll the Quad Collective, which provides Demon Deacons student-athletes with name, image and likeness opportunities, is now a proud partner of Wake Forest Athletics. Wake Forest Sports Properties, a division of LEARFIELD that manages the corporate partnerships and multimedia rights for Wake Forest Athletics, facilitated the partnership.

Launched in fall 2022 and powered by Student Athlete NIL (SANIL), Roll The Quad Collective has signed agreements with Wake Forest student-athletes across various sports. The entity engages with individuals, businesses, and monthly members to fund NIL activities, including autograph signings, personal appearances, and endorsements.

Led by a board of directors including Bob McCreary, Mit Shah, Ben Sutton, David Couch, Alan Fox, Robert McCreary, Mike Drum, and Don Flow, Roll The Quad’s mission is to leverage the collective power of Wake Forest fans, alumni, and supporters to equip student-athletes with the tools and resources necessary to excel both during and beyond their time in Winston-Salem.

Fans of Wake Forest have the opportunity to support student-athletes directly by joining Roll The Quad. Each membership level offers exclusive benefits, and contributions can be designated by specific sport.

“Roll The Quad is thrilled to become a Proud Partner of Wake Forest Athletics,” said Roll The Quad Manager, Josh Strickland. “Partnering with Wake Forest Sports Properties will allow Roll The Quad the opportunity to get in front of passionate Wake Forest fans at multiple athletics events. We look forward to welcoming new members as we move forward by providing our members with opportunities to meet and interact with their favorite student-athletes like never before.”

“We’re excited to welcome Roll The Quad Collective as a proud partner of Wake Forest Athletics,” said Wake Forest Sports Properties General Manager, Banks Shepherd. “As college athletics has evolved with a growing number of NIL opportunities for student-athletes, Roll The Quad presents an opportunity for our loyal supporters of the Deacs to make a direct impact. Wake Forest Athletics provides a first-class student-athlete experience, and growing the Roll The Quad Collective will be a great reinforcement of that standard.”
