Sawgrass Fishing Rods Pairs with Conner Weigman

Sawgrass Fishing Rods (SFR) in College Station, Texas, is excited to announce its first, and potentially the fishing industry’s first, NIL partnership with enthusiastic and longtime outdoorsman, Conner Weigman, 2022 Texas A&M Freshman quarterback. The five-star quarterback and native Texan is a lifelong angler and is eager to get involved with the Texas-based rod company.

“Sawgrass is a Texas-based company built on quality and performance…values I appreciate on and off the football field,” Weigman said.

Sawgrass Fishing Rods founder Greg Zwerneman, a die-hard A&M fan, and the local business owner wanted to onboard a young, skilled, and committed angler to the SFR team.

“We are more than excited to add Conner to the team. His leadership, preparedness, and skill are all values we cultivate at SFR. This is beyond NIL, it’s taking the opportunity to grow our talent base. Conner is a skilled angler, and his input will only benefit our products,” Zwerneman said.

After the 2022 Aggie football season, SFR and Weigman plan to announce several unique promotional events and programs for 2023. Along with some special Weigman fan buys throughout the season.
