Rashan Gary is living his dream as the founder and CEO of his own sports agency.
The defensive end, projected to be one of the top picks in the NFL draft, has fulfilled a vision he had as a high school star in New Jersey and developed in his mind the past three years at Michigan.
“I always had a dream of playing in the NFL and leaving a legacy,” Gary said in an interview with The Associated Press. “The older I got, I understood that football is not forever. This is a step to take care of my family in the long run. Starting this agency is a way I can definitely do that in my years on the football field and the years when I’m not on the football field.”
He has already recruited one NFL prospect to Rashan Gary Sports . And, he hopes to land more players from Major League Baseball, the NBA and NHL by promoting the agency as a way athletes can make the most out of their earning potential.
“It’s going to change the game,” Gary told The AP. “Now, players know the power they have and taking this step is big for me, my family and my dream.”
