Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (10/1/2010)

I was supposed to be hit by a Tropical Storm two days ago, but it ended up being nothing more than a severe rainstorm.  This has been quite a slow Hurricane Season, but no complaints out of me.  I am now officially sworn in as an attorney in the State of Florida.  If you or someone you know needs legal help, the consultation is on me, free of charge.  Clint Robinson is getting ready to head down to Puerto Rico to compete for Arecibo in the Puerto Rico Baseball League.  It will hopefully build on his strengths and cure any of his weaknesses leading up to next year, which should be his first season in the Majors.  I’m going to check out the Social Network movie tonight.  Also, check out when you get a chance and let me know what you think.  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.
