Two Drake Mens Basketball Players sign NIL deal with Dough Co. Pizza

Dough Co. Pizza is thrilled to announce a partnership with two Chicago natives and Drake University's basketball stars, Nate Ferguson and Conor Enright, through a Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) agreement. This collaboration celebrates their Chicago roots and their passion for the game.

Dough Co. Pizza is known for its New York style thin crust pizza but now it will have a Chicago twist bringing the flavors of the Windy City to its menu. In honor of Nate and Conor, Dough Co. Pizza introduces a limited-time special, the Chicago-Inspired Italian Beef Pizza with a Beef Au Jus.

Both Nate Ferguson and Conor Enright have shone on the basketball court with their remarkable skills and dedication, and now, they are ready to dazzle the culinary world as ambassadors for Dough Co. Pizza.


"We are excited to have Nate and Conor on board," said Alec Davis, co-owner of Dough Co. Pizza. "Their love for the game is a slam dunk for our passion for crafting the best New York style pizza in the Midwest. We can't wait to cheer on Drake Basketball this season knowing they’re fueled by Dough Co. Pizza."

"It's a dream come true to partner with Dough Co. Pizza," said Nate Ferguson. "Their dedication to quality and community resonates with our approach to basketball, and we're excited to represent a brand that we admire. Their pizza is flipping tasty too."

"Playing basketball and promoting pizza? Dreams do come true," added Conor Enright. "My lactose intolerance can’t stop me from enjoying Dough Co. Pizza – their dairy free version using vegan cheese is just as tasty!”
