The Texas Legislature is expected to debate high school athletes who benefit from endorsements, the Coaches Association says

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — ABC13 has learned lawmakers could soon allow Texas high school athletes to make money from endorsements.

On Monday, Joe Martin, executive director of the Texas High School Coaches Association, said he expects the Texas legislature to address the issue during a January session.

The club has partnered with a company called Ecker Sports to offer education to athletes, coaches and parents.

Martin has said that he and other Texas high school coaches are preparing for the inevitable.
