Pitt women’s basketball first-year guard and former North Allegheny star Jasmine Timmerson is now the spokesperson for the Healthy Athlete program for Connected Health and Athletic Republic Pittsburgh, the organizations announced on Wednesday.
Connected Health is a wellness and healthcare provider and primary healthcare facility located in the Pittsburgh suburb of Wexford, Pa., in the North Allegheny school district. Athletic Republic is a national company that has facilities all over the country, including Wexford. They specialize in helping athletes reach their fullest potential, by improving their strength, speed, agility and overall athleticism.
Timmerson will serve as the face of the Healthy Athlete program for both companies, making her the first NIL athlete to do so.
The Healthy Athlete will combine the two companies strengths to make sure that athletes are improving in all areas and also doing so in a healthy, safe manner. Connected Health will provide medical care around the clock for these athletes and Athletic Republic will train these athletes for their respective sports and improve them in all areas.
“Having trained at Athletic Republic for the past five years, I know the positive impact of their services, and that of Connected Health,” Timmerson said in a press release. “I’m excited to be the face of their campaign and hope that it encourages other athletes to take this approach with their training and overall health.”
Timmerson is one of three player in the Pitt Class of 2023, which includes forward Lauren Rust and UMass decommit Aaron Battle.
She starred for North Allegheny from 2019-23, scoring 1,274 career points. She averaged 16.4 points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals per game in the 2022-23 season as a senior, while leading her team to a WPIAL 6A Title and a PIAA Quarterfinal appearance as well.
