Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (2/20/09)

Catch the Dynasty Viral Video posted on Monday?  Happy birthday to my girlfriend, who turned 21-years-old today (no robbing the cradle jokes! I’m only 24!).  Spring Training is right around the corner.  I am excited to visit all of our Dynasty clients who will be performing in Florida.  I hope you are catching a glimpse of Rulon Davis at the Combine this week.  Kevin Grant continues to prepare for his big day at Akron’s Pro Day on March 18.  Hopefully the WTA Tour learns a lesson from this and punishes Dubai by scrapping the tourny in the future.  Tough times for Playboy.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:



Sports Agents


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.
