Aquinas College Women’s Volleyball student-athlete Chloe V. Mitchell begins a new NIL journey as host of the Playbooked Podcast, a new show on iHeart Radio’s new College Athletes Network.
The “Playbooked” title of the show refers to the Playbooked web platform/mobile app that was founded by Mitchell and her father, Keith A. Mitchell. The tool is designed to help collegiate athletes monetize their years in college sports.
The podcast will feature discussions with “athlete-preneurs” who will share their experiences about navigating NIL opportunities. Mitchell intends to have the show provide listeners with a real-life tactical playbook for NIL success.
In a released statement from Playbooked, Mitchell says “I am consistently impressed by the incredible capability and ingenuity of student-athletes! It’s exciting to see this bright community of young athlete-preneurs emerge and promising to learn about the wide variety of creativity and ambition in the NIL space.”
The Playbooked Podcast begins with plans for a 10-week series. Planned guests include:
- Lexi Hill, Princeton Soccer
- Derrian Gobourne, Auburn Gymnastics
- Dorian James & James Stevens, Stanford Track
- J’Marick Woods, Duke Football
- Emily Cole, Duke Track
