Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (8/26/11)

I am officially teaching my first college class next Monday.  I am more excited than nervous.  The one thing I am not looking forward to is putting together the Powerpoint slides.  Two days after that, I will be taking a much deserved vacation to Las Vegas.  Shout at me if you will be in Vegas any time between next Wednesday and Sunday.  Sports Agent Blog is still offering the best deal around on the Athlete Connect program, which gives you access to sports agent contact information.  Here are some stories I that I enjoyed reading in 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.
