By giving gifted and industrious people additional opportunity, Dwayne Johnson gives back to society. Along with many other fantastic projects, Johnson introduced a new NIL program in 2023 for collegiate players who want to make the most use of their name, likeness, and image. He consequently signed seven gifted young adults to participate in the first program.
Hansel Enmanuel, a Dominican basketball player for the Austin Peay Governors of the ASUN Conference, was one of the seven young athletes on the list. Enmanuel recently expressed his gratitude for “The Rock” and his successful NIL program on Instagram.
Why is Enmanuel thanking Johnson for his NIL program, and what is that program?
DJ began his first NIL program for ZOA Energy in 2023. These young athletes would gain from the old wrestler’s brand name as they developed, and the energy drink would gain from their efforts and growing popularity.
Following several months of enrollment in the NIL program, an athlete made the decision to express his appreciation for “The Brahma Bull” on social media with a heartfelt message.
In a sweet photo that Hansel Enmanuel shared, he and Johnson are seen sitting next to one another, grinning, and each holding an energy drink can. The basketball player from Dominica posted, “#fuelsomethingbigger @zoaenergy and THANK GOD FOR THE OPPORTUNITY and TRUSTING me @therock ️ #fuelsomethingbigger”
Even though Enmanuel signed the NIL deal recently, it is evident that he is still happy and grateful that he was picked to take advantage of this chance. It was stated that he was promised $1.2 million as part of this contract.
Hansel is not the only athlete signed in this NIL deal, as was previously stated. In fact, another basketball player used social media to express her appreciation for this kind offer.
The young sportsmen on his team adore Dwayne Johnson.
There were seven athletes from all throughout the nation in the first group of The Rock’s Warriors. In addition to Enmanuel, the cherished Angel Reese of LSU was included in the list.

Reese shared her candid sentiments about enrolling in the ZOA Energy NIL on Instagram shortly after the first batch was revealed, and they were just as endearing as Enmanuel’s. “I am incredibly proud to announce that @therock and @zoaenergy have selected me along with seven other incredible and diverse athletes for the inaugural class of The Rock’s Warriors.” I can’t wait to see what lies ahead and to help my fellow fighters through their seasons,” she exclaimed.
