Arizona State football head coach Kenny Dillingham said the school “wouldn’t have a football team” without booster Nap Lawrence contributing to its NIL program.
Sun Devils booster Charles “Nap” Lawrence pledged $1 million to Dillingham’s “Activate the Valley” NIL plan during the first-year head coach’s introductory press conference in November. Lawrence, an insurance salesman and long-time supporter of Arizona State, told AZ Central that his donations to ASU have totaled about $9 million over the years.
“First of all, we wouldn’t have a football team without Nap Lawrence,” Dillingham said Thursday. “You can put that in every single streaming media you want. Nap Lawrence built our football team. Because of what he did the first day I got hired. We would not have a team. Point blank, zero; we would not have a football team without Nap Lawrence.”
