Stephens Insurance, LLC (“Stephens Insurance”), an affiliate of independent financial services firm Stephens Inc., today announced a Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) deal with University of Arkansas linebacker Bumper Pool. Stephens has a long history of supporting athletics at the University of Arkansas and former Razorbacks on the PGA and LPGA tours.

He was named both National Defensive Player of the Week and SEC Defensive Player of the Week in 2020.

“Bumper’s contributions to the University of Arkansas football program have been significant,” said Stephens Insurance President and Chief Executive Officer Miles Stephens. “His and his teammates’ commitment to turning around the program is something all of us at Stephens Insurance admire. We are excited to partner with Bumper.”

“It is truly an honor to be partnered with Stephens Insurance,” said Bumper Pool. “Stephens’ longtime support of the Razorbacks makes this partnership special. The responsibility I have to the state, University and to my teammates to continue the rebuilding of the program and to reinforce the standards that have been set forth is not one I take lightly. To have a partner like Stephens Insurance on my side just adds to the excitement I have going into the 2022 season.”
