Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (8/7/09)

Back in Sunny South Florida (as if Gainesville did not feel like 120 degrees this past week).  I’ll be down here for a week and change.  I have some business matters to take care of, and the usual standard doctors/dentist visit.  It’s always nice to spend some time with family as well.  The baseball division keeps growing, and we are beginning to prepare ourselves for 2010 and beyond.  We have a brand new Baseball Advising Package that we will be unveiling soon.  I find no reason to keep it hidden.  I continue to have daily discussions with our agents overseas about some of our basketball clients (not all of them are listed on the website).  Just been very busy.  Excited for my final year of law school.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:

Sports Law

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.
