Rising Spear is a third-party NIL collective and a proud partner of Florida State Athletics. Our organization has provided 1,400+ hours of local, regional, and national NIL activation opportunities and appearances for over 200 student-athletes. Through Rising Spear, FSU student-athletes can optimize their brand and access monetization opportunities in cooperation with donors, businesses, and community partners.

Currently, Rising Spear is serving student-athletes from: baseball, basketball, beach volleyball, soccer, softball, tennis, and volleyball.

Rising Spear consists of two entities: Garnet Spirit Inc. and Gold Standard.

Garnet Spirit Inc. is an approved non-profit organization designed to empower FSU student-athletes to positively impact underserved communities in the Tallahassee area. With assistance from our generous donors, we fund in-person appearances for our student-athletes at schools throughout Leon County, Tallahassee Memorial Rehabilitation Center, The American Red Cross, The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Big Bend, Make-A-Wish of Central and North Florida and other charitable organizations. Garnet Spirit Inc. was recently honored by Leon County schools as a distinguished business partner for our charitable work in the Tallahassee community.

Gold Standard is a for-profit entity that allows student-athletes to profit from their Name, Image, and Likeness through partnerships with local, regional, and national corporations. These partnerships provide FSU student-athletes the ability to build and develop their own brand through social media, in-person appearances, and digital media distribution.

When you support Rising Spear, you have the option to support Garnet, Gold Standard, or both of our entities.

Rising Spear is not affiliated with Florida State University and is compliant with all local, state, and NCAA NIL regulations and guidelines.
