Davies Sports & Entertainment Agency
Networking, networking, and more networking. I was able to connect with Keldon Johnson from the Spurs this past fall, and after meeting his management team, they loved the passion I have for the game of basketball. I mentioned that I want to pursue a career as a sports agent, and now, I work under four great agents and managers who yield years of experience in both the NFL and NBA. Together, we manage more than 18 athletes who play in the NCAA, NFL, and NBA. Huge shoutout to Cameron Davies, Question, Jack Sharf, and Terence Tarrer for taking a chance on me.
What was the most surprising thing you learned at your job?
I learned how precise contracts need to be. Until you work with contracts on a daily basis, you don’t realize how much one word matters until you have to re-send contracts to athletes because you forgot you include something. I also realized how important it is to know the athletes on a personal level because it helps with securing deals that fit their lifestyle. Also, this type of work never ends. There have been many times when I have had to take meetings on the weekends or take athletes to workouts in the mornings.
What do you like most about your job?
I have always wanted to work in the NBA or NFL, and this job has given me the best of both worlds. I have been able to connect with both NBA and NFL players and work with them in their contracts on a daily basis. I have also been very involved in NIL, and we manage basketball players at schools like Gonzaga, Texas, and North Carolina. I appreciate the amount of trust my superiors have in me to get jobs done, it has helped me grow and mature in this industry very quickly.
