This article is for all the young athletes who depend on Sports Networker to provide resourceful tools for your future sports career. You’ve got hustle, talent, and on your way to the pro level. How do you find a sports agent who has your best interest in mind? Here are some tips to help you find the right agent who will represent you, the athlete…and you, the person.
1. Ask fellow athletes and professional level personnel for referrals.
Word gets around quickly and good agents come highly recommended, based on experience and a stellar record of matching athletes to the right team and the best package.
2. Hold out for the best.
Many will attempt to woo you to sign with them. They will offer money, LOTS of it. Don’t just sign with the first agent you talk to. Interview many agents and ask a ton of questions. Believe me, they’re used to it.
3. Perform a background check.
Do your homework! Ask for references of peers and a list of former clients who obtained successful contracts through that agent. Take time to call and check out the agents’ credibility. If they’re reputable, they will not have any problem with you doing a little investigation.
4. Utilize the Sports Agent Directory.
This is a comprehensive listing of agents and their contact information. Still – do your homework. Just because an agent is listed in a directory, doesn’t mean he or she is reputable or the right match for you and your sports goals. Don’t do any business with an agent unless he’s an educated, certified agent.
5. Don’t sign on the dotted line just yet.
If you’re planning to play college ball, signing with an agent will wipe out your eligibility. Don’t let an agent tell you they might not be available when you’re ready to sign. There are enough good agents in the world to go around.
6. Make sure the agent is adept at CBA’s and is well connected.
A great agent is well connected in the industry. He has thousands of phone numbers of coaches, general managers, scouts, and athletic managers. He’s on the cutting edge of proposals and he’s at the top of his game with negotiation skills.
7. The agent must be a master communicator and networker.
The agent you ultimately decide on must have top-notch communication skills and be able to talk to anyone, anywhere, anytime. After all, he’ll need those skills to successfully negotiate with team owners, coaches, and sponsors. He must be able to build honest rapport with virtually anyone and his networking skills must be unsurpassed.
8. Honesty, integrity, patience, determination, and drive must dominate the agents’ entire persona.
The agent you decide on HAS to be driven by these qualities in all areas of his life.
9. An agent should meet and exceed your needs as a client.
An agent will excel in all areas of client requirements such as endorsement deals, restructuring of contracts, doing your taxes, or simply providing an ear to you, your significant other, and perhaps even family members who have concerns. He sincerely cares for you, the individual.
10. Only the 100% committed need apply.
If you’ve narrowed your choices for an agent, put each to the test. Call at various times of the day to see if the agent picks up the phone or how long it takes him to call you back. The agent you want is the one who is available 24/7/365 and responds with enthusiasm, a can-do attitude, and stats to back up what he’s promising.

I am an ex-school teacher who still remains in contact with a 25 year old past student of mine from the Philadelphia area. His name is Mwangi Sekow and he needs an agent to represent him in the NFL. See if this interests you…he is 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 255 lbs, runs the 40 in 4.6 and catches anything thrown to him in the same neighborhood. Was touted to be a starting tight end at South Carolina University Gamecocks, by the head coach who was fired , then Covid hit. The new coach wanted him to red shirt, his mother did not want him to red shirt and matriculated him into a D2 school in Virginia to continue his education. He ran a kickoff back 85 yards for a TD at 255 lbs. This kid is a beast and tough as nails. He’s from the inner city, needs a break and a good, honest agent. I’ll say it again…6’3″ 255lbs and runs a 4.6 40. He’s undersized for an NFL tight end but his other position of running back, he would be a coaches dream to come off the bench and get you a first down. Catches everything, can block, is quick as a man half his size and he’s tough. He’s got 5 to 7 good years left. Please contact me and help this kid and yourself, please!
