Our Services

Contract Negotiations

ELITE is one of the most powerful dealmakers in the NFL. ELITE is committed to maximizing your earning potential. Our number one goal is to garner you a lifetime of financial security.

Brand Management

Today’s professional sports world is about much more than being good at a sport. You have to take into account the fans, sponsors and how you are perceived.

Marketing & Endorsements

At ELITE Sports we not only secure your marketing and endorsement deals, but we are dedicated with building your personal brand and creating a lifetime of brand equity.

Public Relations

Public persona and professional reputation are of great importance and play a critical role in success. Whether a desire to be in the spotlight or preference to lay low, ELITE will work closely with each client to help develop and implement a desirable public persona. ELITE utilizes all forms of public relations to create and maintain a positive image, while also increasing visibility, value, and marketability.

Post-Career Planning

Realistically, very few athletes actually get the choice of when their athletic career comes to an end. Even if an athlete has a long successful career in professional sports, they still have to support themselves after it is all set and done. ELITE will assist you in preparing for life after football. We truly believe the best time to prepare is while you are in the spotlight as a player.

Legal Services

Through the vast legal network of the agency, ELITE is able to offer its clients the depth of legal expertise, talent, and resources available throughout the agents’ years of legal expertise and experience. Whether its estate planning or an unforeseen legal claim, we have you covered.

Team Elite, it's such an honor to be apart of a great team and not only a team but a family that really cares. Coming out of college so many turned me down and counted me out but this team here brought me in and worked hard sun up and sun down to get me in front of scouts. Forsaking time with their family even their own careers to grind it out with me. Always answered when I called or got back with me immediately. Great communication from agent to client relations which is extremely important in a partnership. Coming out of a small college with all the odds against me was tough but, having the right people who believe in the right things and never backing down is what I found in this team. I'm extremely humbled and excited to be apart of the family. My road to success begin here and I'll forever be indebted and greatful for my time spent. I'll encourage anyone that's trying to make it that this team here will definitely be in your corner every step of the way. God bless Dave & Sean.
