Harold Lewis

Football Agent

                      

   

What advice do you have for an aspiring Football Agent?

You really have to know what you are getting into.  It is a really enjoyable job working with football players, going to all the super bowl games.  You are hired because you can do more for the player than they can do for you.  You have to be really good at what you do.  You have to be a good negotiator, you have to do your homework on the players, you have to protect your players financially.  The key thing is to have a relationship with your players before and after the players career.  You really have to be friends with the players family and you need to know what the player is going through.  
 

How did you get started as a NFL Agent?

In my situation it was pure accidental.  I never wanted to be an agent.  The football Cardinals were practicing at the old Busch Stadium and I became friends with them and I started helping them out, because they had no jobs.  Then I helped one out and then the other one out and spreaded out because the players were talking about me, and about 3 years into it I had 6 or 7 guys in the league and never charged them anything. I was just helping friends out.  Then I said I like this so maybe I should be a sports agent and if I'm gonna I need to do it the right way, so that is why I created National Sports Agency.
 

How did you go from being a baseball player to a NFL Agent?

Being a baseball player was my backround, which got me into college and college helped me learn how to work hard.  After my class I rushed to go get lunch in than hit the baseball field for batting practice or a game.  Then after practice or a game I rushed back to class.  Then I went to work for money till 1:00 in the morning and then I did that same routine every day.  It really teached me how to work hard.     

 

If you were not a football agent what would you be?

I used to be in the picture business and we were the largest photography business in the country.  We did family portraits and cool pictures, we actually did really well.  I would probably still be in the picture business.  If not the picture field I would run a kind of business where I can invent things and create things that people need.  I love doing that.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?  And why?

My favorite was always gym class.  My favorite subject was math because numbers always came to me easily.  I also loved science and history.

 

What do you like to do in your free time?

I love spending time with my family, I have a wife and 2 kids.  One is 14 and the other is 21.  I love spending time with my family and friends.
