Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up

I missed a lot of news from Sunday-Wednesday (being trapped in a poker room in Biloxi, Mississippi…losing my ass), and it took a while for me to catch up with all of that on top of reading yesterday’s important sports agent news.  Thus, I bring to you a Friday wrap-up, of the biggest sports agent related stories of the week:

-Darren Heitner

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.

You could also mention that Gustavo Dominguez, co-founder of Total Sports International, just got caught for smuggling in Cubans to become potential MLB players. He is charged with 21 counts of charges related to bringing in illegal immigrants into the United States.
