Georgia Tech WR Darren Waller Signs With PlayersRep
Georgia Tech wide receiver, Darren Waller, has signed with PlayersRep Sports Management. This was announced by Andy Simms via his Twitter account.
Waller is a 6’5″ wide out from Acworth, GA who has gained the attention of NFL scouts for his 232 pound frame, and for the fact that he runs a 4.54 40 yard dash. Considering that Georgia Tech runs the triple option offense, opportunities are hard to come by as a receiver in that scheme. Although being suspended for the first two games of the season due to a violation of team rules, Waller still accounted for 26 receptions totaling 442 yards and 6 TDs. As a team, Georgia Tech had a mere 106 receptions on the 2014 season for 19 receiving TDs.
PlayersRep Sports was founded in 1997 by agents Andy Simms and Wesley Spencer. According to its website, “PlayersRep combines a unique blend of past experience and success with personal service and attention that is normally found in only the smallest boutique firms,” and “PlayersRep LIMITS the number of new clients we take on each year, which allows us to focus entirely on the players we represent.” The company has negotiated over 400 NFL contracts.
Co-Founder Andy Simms negotiated his first NFL contracts while a law student at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. He oversees operations including negotiation of player contracts, marketing opportunities, coordination of financial and tax advice, and legal services.
