I have several at the top of my list. Standing with the father of my first NFL client as his son ran onto the field is moment I will never forget. (Tears were streaming down both our faces. And we went to Waffle House afterwards to celebrate!) Sitting in the green room at Radio City Music Hall during the 2010 NFL Draft as my client was announced as the #3 overall pick was truly the thrill of a lifetime. And history was made. It may sound silly now, but one of the best parts of that particular evening was checking my phone after the fact and seeing dozens and dozens of messages from scouts, GM’s, fellow agents and others in the sports business congratulating me and my client. It was a dream come true for both of us!
