By Blue Dragon Sports Information

HUTCHINSON, Kan. ( – The Hutchinson Community College Blue Dragon Athletic Department is proud to announce its partnership with Opendorse, creating a Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) platform for Blue Dragon student athletes with the one of the industry leaders in the NIL space.

“We’re incredibly proud to partner with Hutchinson Community College,” said Opendorse CEO Blake Lawrence. “We’ve seen first-hand the positive impact that NIL can bring to the NJCAA level when athletes are empowered with the right education and solutions, and look forward to helping Hutch CC navigate this landscape.”

This partnership will ensure student-athlete eligibility by enabling them to disclose any NIL deals with Blue Dragon Athletics.

The Hutchinson CC Blue Dragon Marketplace is live and online.

Through the marketplace, athletes can showcase themselves through the sport they play, their school, academics and personal interests to attract potential NIL deals as well as grow their name, image and likeness.

“Blue Dragon Athletics’ partnership with Opendorse will keep our student athletes on the cutting edge moving forward in this ever-changing environment, Blue Dragon Athletic Director Josh Gooch said. “Their platform provides all the educational information needed, and their staff provides the guidance to navigate the Name, Image and Likeness opportunities.”
