LeBron wanted it and California’s governor signed it. What the college athlete compensation law means to real estate

Gavin Newsom signed the “Fair Pay to Play Act” into law on Monday, and marked the occasion with an appearance on L.A. Lakers superstar LeBron James’ HBO show, “The Shop.”The new law — which will allow college athletes to earn money from their names, likenesses and images — could also have a major impact on California’s real estate industry by creating a new pipeline of young millionaires in the home buying market. Several Los Angeles real estate agents said they support the measure, though it also presents a unique set of challenges.ADVERTISEMENTThe new law, which will take effect in 2023, “is going to initiate dozens of other states to introduce similar legislation,” Newsom said at a signing ceremony on James’ show. “It’s going to change college sports for the better by finally having the interests of the athletes on par with the interests of the institutions. Now we’re rebalancing that power.”James was able to join the NBA without being required to spend a year in college, as most young athletes must now do. He has been a vocal critic of NCAA rules prohibiting student athletes from profiting off their likenesses, measures that many see as exploitative.The Pac-12 Conference has spoken out against the bill, raising the concern that members California State University, Stanford, UCLA and USC could lose their NCAA membership as a result.“Our universities have led important student-athlete reform over the past years,” the conference said in a statement, “but firmly believe all reforms must treat our student-athletes as students pursuing an education, and not as professional athletes.” [WaPo] — Kevin Sun This content is for subscribers only.Subscribe Nowlast_img read more

Rockford, ranked third in Division 1, is now 4-0.Friesen did a lot of damage when the Sailors could least afford it.Mona Shores led 14-7 with just seconds left before halftime when Friesen broke loose for a 51-yard touchdown run. The PAT kick made the score 14-14 at the break.Mona Shores’ Tre’shawn Hatcher takes the hand-off from Caden Broersma. Photo/Eric SturrThen late in the game, with Rockford clinging to a 27-21 lead and facing a fourth-and-one at the Mona Shores 37, Friesen broke through for another touchdown scamper to ice the victory for his team.“He’s a big back,” said Mona Shores Coach Matt Koziak. “They do a great job. They don’t deviate from what they do, which is why they’ve been in the playoffs for 20-plus years. That’s a great football team, it was a great football game, but we’ve got to play better in games like this.”The Sailors were their own worst enemies at key times, particularly in the fatal second half.After falling behind 20-14 in the third quarter, Mona Shores mishandled a snap from center and Rockford jumped on the loose ball, giving the Rams first down at the Sailor 20. The Mona Shores defense held its ground, forcing Rockford to attempt and miss a 31-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, and it looked like a new ballgame.But the Sailors were flagged for roughing the kicker, a 15-yard penalty, and two plays later Friesen scored from a yard out. The extra point put Rockford up 27-14.Mona Shores fought back, scoring on a 5-yard run by Brady Rose with 1:22 left in the game, and the extra point pulled the Sailors within striking distance at 27-21.Mona Shores then tried an onside kick, but the ball went out of bounds and Rockford took over at the Sailor 46. The Sailor defense again held tough, forcing the Rams into the fourth down situation with 1:05 remaining, before Friesen nailed the coffin shut with his final touchdown run.Mona Shores’ Brady Rose turns the corner and picks up a first down for the Sailors. Photo/Eric Sturr“We didn’t execute when we had to, but a lot of that had to do with Rockford and their scheme,” Koziak said. “You can’t get behind the sticks against Rockford.”Rockford took the opening kickoff of the game, drove 77 yards on 14 plays, and scored on a 4-yard run by Friesen. The Sailors answered on their first possession, driving 71 yards on eight plays for a TD, which was scored on a 31-yard run by Rose. The extra point made the score 7-7.The teams traded punts after that, then the Sailors went up 14-7 midway through the second quarter on a 19-yard touchdown run by Tre Hatcher.That lead nearly held up until halftime, but a tough decision took that opportunity away.The Sailors faced a fourth-and-three at the Rockford 43 with under a minute left in the half. They decided to go for the first down, but were stopped short, giving Rockford the ball with 25 seconds left. Friesen broke loose for his 51-yard touchdown on third-and-14 from the Rockford 49, and the Rams went into the locker room with the momentum.“There is still another half to play, but going in 14-7 instead of 14-14 is really different, for sure,” Koziak said.That led to the second-half mistakes by the Sailors and three more Friesen touchdowns, and Mona Shores had its first loss of the season.While Koziak was disappointed with the loss, he credited the players for staying in the game despite their errors. He also encouraged them to remember the pain of the loss and use it for motivation down the road.“Ultimately you want to win football games,” the coach said. “The kids work extremely hard, so this should hurt and this should feel bad, because this is what they work for. We don’t want them to forget what this feels like. They should draw energy from this.”Hatcher led the Sailors with 71 yards on 10 carries while Rose finished with 67 on five carries. Cam Sobish led the defense with 12 tackles and Gary Humphrey recorded nine. DEAL OF THE DAY Not relevant × Thank you! This will help us improve your ad experience.
