The Work At Home Mom (WAHM) Sports Agent

It’s 8:30 am. The regional scouts for most of the NFL teams are already on the sidelines. On the football field, about 80 NFL hopefuls are warming up for another day’s practice preparing for the senior all-star game scheduled to take place at the end of the week. Many of the agents there in support of their player, or players as the case may be, are invariably and constantly taking their phones to their ears like gunslingers at the draw. The hushed banter of what amounts to be a large clique clings to the morning air and is abruptly broken by a 13-month-old’s gleeful shriek at the sight of the football action on the field. Heads whip around to determine where the shriek came from and their stares rest on me and the little one in my arms a lot longer than expected. This scene complete with raised eyebrows and muttered under-breath inquiries into my identity is one that I have grown accustomed to in my career of choice as a sports agent. However, it did not take the inquirers long to accept me as the WAHM NFL sports agent and for this I am quite thankful because it is resounding proof, in and of itself, that the face of the sports agency world is changing.
