Since the NCAA’s NIL rule changes, Pitt’s senior quarterback Kenny Pickett has been a busy man. He’s branded his own logo, secured a deal with the Oaklander Hotel, and now has partnered with PGT Trucking and Ithen USA to sell t-shirts for a good cause.
I love this community! Excited to announce I have teamed up with @PGTTrucking & @Ithen_USA to form "Pickett’s Partners" & on Aug. 9 we will donate 200 t-shirts to the @bgcwpa. Details on how you can buy yours w/ proceeds donated to the @bgcwpa are coming soon! #PickettsPartners pic.twitter.com/F6DgGqoXdf

The shirts, which feature Pickett’s new logo, will be sold with all proceeds going to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Western Pennsylvania. In addition, 200 shirts will be donated to the BGCWPA on August 9.
And this isn’t his first use of new NIL rules for generosity. Pickett teamed up with the Oaklander Hotel on July 15, specifically their Spirits & Tales, to treat his offensive linemen to dinner, which he has done every week since he became the starting quarterback.
