Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (9/4/09)

I have to start by quickly thanking Mizuno for a huge shipment of spikes and training shoes, and Swenson Baseball for sending some high quality gloves to a few of Dynasty’s baseball clients.  Our boys are enjoying the equipment and showing it off as they put an end to their successful professional seasons.  Is everybody excited for the start of college football?  I am pumped to be in Gainesville, and hoping that the Gators bring home another National Championship trophy.  I am two weeks through my final year of law school…it doesn’t even seem like it has started yet.  Before I get to the stories, I have to give some props to a two-time All American, Super Bowl champion, sports agent, first President of the Minnesota Timberwolves, and member of the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, Bob Stein.  Okay, here are some stories I missed over the past week:





Sports Business

By Darren Heitner

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.
