Armchair Strategies, a NIL collective focused on Wichita State student-athletes, was launched in April 2022. Armchair Strategies said one of its biggest goals is to attract higher-profile recruits to the school. Armchair Strategies led by former WSU baseball players Tyler Weber and Tymber Lee, along with former Shocker Assistant Athletic Director of Development Matt Baty. Baty is also involved with 6th Man Strategies, which is the NIL collective for KU. “Wichita State Athletics is fundamental to this community,” Weber told KSN-TV. “It is important that WSU student-athletes are supported with strategic NIL opportunities that financially maximize the brand they have worked hard to develop. One of WSU’s biggest assets is the Wichita Community and dedicated alumni base. We look forward to showing our student-athletes that there is a powerful network that will help them optimize this NIL opportunity.” Armchair Strategies has multiple platforms that will directly impact WSU student-athletes. One of these is the “Century Club,” which will be made up of 100 fans and businesses that want to lead the way in NIL. Another platform will be the “Shocker Exclusive,” an organization that will take tax-deductible contributions.
