Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (11/5/2010)

I am currently up in Bloomington, Indiana, where I am finishing up a nice little tour of college campuses this week.  On Monday, I had the joy of speaking to the YCP Sport Management Student Association with Peg Kaufmann (AD Millersville U.) & Bryan Minniti (Assistant GM Washington Nationals), who were great speakers and very down-to-earth, kind, and intelligent individuals.  Thanks to the Association, and especially Justin Facer, who was a fantastic host.  Tuesday it was off to Jacksonville, where I engaged in quite a discussion with Florida Coastal School of Law Students, who asked really great questions and made my time worthwhile.  I cannot wait to go to other schools in the near future.  If your institution is not yet on my list, feel free to contact me.  When I am not doing this type of speaking or working on Dynasty related matters, I am also working at an entrepreneurial, fantastic law firm based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  It is called Koch Parafinczuk Wolf P.A. (KPW).  Check out the firm’s website here, and let me know if I can ever help you in a legal capacity.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week:

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.

It was great having Darren on campus. He did a wonderful job interacting and sharing his knowledge and experience with our students. If any college is interested in having him speak to your students, I would highly recommend him!
