Earlier this week, it was reported that Marcus Mariota had signed an endorsement deal with Beats By Dre. Today, the first day of the 2015 NFL Draft, Beats unveiled their inaugural ad with the former Oregon Ducks star and Heisman Trophy winner.
The ad is titled, “Ohana,” which translates to family.
As we all know, family and culture is very important for Marcus Mariota. It was the driving force behind his decision to decline an invitation to the draft in Chicago.
Instead of being caught up in all of the media hooplah in the draft rooms, Mariota will be at home in Hawaii enjoying the beginning of the next chapter of his life with the ones that he wants the most.
The Beats by Dre ad shows Mariota training on the beaches of Hawaii, while you can see and hear those closest to him describing his work ethic.
It is clear that Mariota’s strong support system is his motivating factor and the ad does a great job of allowing us to get an up-close look at one of the top draft prospects in this year’s class.
