Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up

Another busy week of summer has blown by, which means that it is getting closer and closer to my return to lovely Gainesville, Florida.  Nothing against the town that UF sits in, but I am getting quite comfortable with spending much of each day down here in South Florida working on Dynasty and this blog.  The future looks bright; I just wish it would get here already without me having to age another two years.  Anyway, I am happy with the way that my hometown Heat did in the draft last night.  And tomorrow should be exciting, as I will be heading to the Gator Greats Alumni Basketball Game being held at Florida Atlantic University.  Hanging out with Joakim Noah, Corey Brewer, and Udonis Haslem is never a bad thing.  Here are some stories I failed to cover over the past week:

Sports Agents

Baseball

Basketball

Football

Hockey

Golf

  • Win a tournament, think your on top of the world, and move from a small agency to a behemoth [Anthony Kim lands with IMG].
  • NY based model and talent agency, Wilhelmina, will market 7 of the finest LPGA golfers as the W7.  Check out one of the girls who make up the 7 below.

Darren Heitner created Sports Agent Blog as a New Year's Resolution on December 31, 2005. Originally titled, "I Want To Be A Sports Agent," the website was founded with the intention of causing Heitner to learn more about the profession that he wanted to join, meet reputable individuals in the space and force himself to stay on top of the latest news and trends.

Heitner now runs Heitner Legal, P.L.L.C., which is a law firm with many practice areas, including sports law and contract law. Heitner has represented numerous athletes and sports agents as legal counsel. He has also served as an Adjunct Professor at Indiana University Bloomington from 2011-2014, where he created and taught a course titled, Sport Agency Management, which included subjects ranging from NCAA regulations to athlete agent certification and the rules governing the profession. Heitner serves as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where he teaches a Sports Law class that includes case law surrounding athlete agents and the NCAA rules.
