On To The Next One: Peyton Hillis [Part 2]

The first On to the Next One involving Peyton Hillis was published on July 1, 2011, and focused on Hillis’ switch from SportsTrust Advisors to Kelli Masters of KM Sports.  However, I have come to find out that the change of representation was short lived.  Last night, Masters informed me that Hillis once again changed representation (this time leaving Masters) prior to the end of the NFL lockout.

Hillis is now represented by Kennard McGuire of MS World.  Hillis joins a group of McGuire clientele that includes Andre Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Vince Wilfork, and Shaun Rogers.  One thing that jumps out to me is that Peyton Hillis is the only white football client on MS World’s NFL Clients page.  Merely an observation.

You recently blogged that race has no place in these conversations. Ironic that you felt the need to make this observation.
