Stephen Nicholas is a product of Jacksonville, Florida. He went to the University of South Florida before getting drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the 4th round of the 2007 NFL Draft. The linebacker has racked up 211 tackles, 5 sacks, and 1 interception since becoming a professional. 78 of those tackles came in 2010. Those numbers were good enough to interest the gentlemen at Octagon Football. Nicholas has signed with Doug Hendrickson and CJ LaBoy of Octagon.
Nicholas was formerly represented by Allegiant Athletic Agency (a3). a3 still lists Nicholas as a client on its website, but the company has not responded regarding any questions concerning Nicholas’ switch in representation. Hendrickson confirmed the change.
