This past weekend’s event was the first edition of the “Mick Vick Experience Camp.”

Back in April, it was announced that Vick would partner with Triumph NIL as a Legacy Athlete. Vick has a channel on the Triumph Digital Network and he will be involved in activations leveraging his name, image and likeness rights.

This is the first high-profile event Vick has hosted.

“We’ve always envisioned a legacy program being part of the Triumph business model,” Brenden Hill, Triumph partner, and strategic lead, said in a statement when the agency signed Vick. “The nostalgia and memories those former players created are the bedrock of Virginia Tech athletics and the connection with the fanbase. I’m excited for Mike to be a part of this and can’t wait to feature more former student-athletes. We’ve been intentional about how legacy deals will be structured to benefit former players and fund our goals to support current student-athletes, creating win-win scenarios.”

At least 20 high school football players were on hand in Blacksburg, Virginia this past weekend for the event.

Among those in attendance were Virginia Tech 2024 quarterback commit Davi Belfort, and several other 4-and 5-star talent.

With Vick at the forefront of this camp, he offered sage advice, not only on the field, but off the field. Vick advised the young recruits on what to expect as they enter college and guided them on how to navigate the NIL space.

Vick played two seasons at Virginia Tech and became an instant phenom. He threw for 3,279 yards and ran for 1,216 yards in his two seasons as a Hokie. Vick led Virginia Tech to the 1999 BCS national championship game and was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft by the Atlanta Falcons.
