Agent Spotlight: Joby Branion
Joby Branion is one of the founding members of Athletes First. Matt Hasselbeck, Ahman Green, and Todd Heap are only 3 of the many players under contract with the company. Athletes First is one of the agencies at the forefront of NFL player negotiations.
It has not always been an easy life full of potential for Branion, however. Branion was adopted at birth and had to live with his adopted mother’s murder. To make the situation worse, his adopted father was convicted for causing her death. Yet, Branion’s father did not actually commit the crime. The family fled to Africa. When Joby returned to the U.S., he became a star football player, but never succeeded in the professional ranks. He has succeeded in the sports agent industry, though.
