Family & My Best Interest

I’ve been with Total Sports since 2007 and I wouldn’t change my management for anyone. I’ve been blessed and fortunate to be a part of a family that cares and always looks out for my best interest. All the athletes are like family an makes being overseas feel like home.

Dedication & Financial Efficacy

Total Sports Management takes the guess work out of professional athletics by providing supportive services through a simple but effective formula. I’ve found that a refreshing transparency, honest dedication to clientele, and sound financial efficacy set Total Sports apart from rival agencies. The high demands of professional athletics comes with a host of tough decisions, but one I’ve never regretted is putting my career in the good hands of Total Sports.

We’ve also negotiated agreements for our clients to represent several different countries as they pursue Olympic bids.

Media

Our staff has landed clients in a vast array of print media: Sports Illustrated, Maxim, Forbes, USA Today, along with television appearances on the Oxygen Channel, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and the Tonight Show. We spend time educating our clients on how to handle the media in both good and bad situations, as well as what to say and when to say it.
