Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up

Dynasty has three new interns. There were so many qualified candidates that there was no way I could just stick with two. Congrats to the three who were chosen. I am continuing to work on a complete overhaul of this site’s look, which is still planned to be finished by the end of this month. Packing for Israel has begun. I will be out of the country from May 11-21. This site will once again be left in the strong editorial hands of Jason Wulterkens, and I promise you that his posts will not be limited to golf topics. Here are some stories that you may have not seen over the past week:

Lots of goodness this week. We received a lot of inbound links and even got some love from Sports Illustrated. I will go with where the page views have been heavy and make the post on 11-year-old, Jashaun Agosto, the featured post of the week. Check it out on the right sidebar by clicking Featured.

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 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.
