WVU Football’s Gmiter Uses NIL for Charity



MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – WVU Football’s veteran offensive guard, redshirt junior James Gmiter is utilizing the new Name-Image-Likeness ruling to his advantage. He announced, via Twitter, that beginning Oct. 16, 100 percent of the proceeds earned through his partnership with Campus Mogul will be redirected toward The Underprivileged Children Foundation in Charleston, W.Va.

The family man of soon-to-be two is focused on shining a light on the inequities of resource allotment for impoverished West Virginian children. The Underprivileged Children Foundation, founded in 2016, is comprised of a group of native West Virginians volunteering to provide assistance for locals struggling at the hands of addiction, poverty, abuse, domestic violence, and neglect issues. Through school supply drives, Christmas toy drives, Easter basket drives, and teen-centric offerings like prom and graduation attire, the foundation serves underprivileged children all over the state.

Gmiter, a native of Bethel Park, Pa., aims to raise money so that children, like his two daughters, can grow up in a welcoming West Virginia.

The tweet containing the link to buy Gmiter’s t-shirt is below, but if you’d like to donate to the foundation outside of his NIL deal, you can also do so here.
