our founder’s story.
Being a high school athlete should be fun. You have your whole sports future ahead of you. Or at least that’s what Jay thought. That he could be the next Kobe Bryant.
And maybe he could have been. 12 years old. 6 feet tall. Jay poured his heart onto that basketball court. And he was really good. So good that he got noticed by a college recruiter when he was just a freshman.
But Jay’s family was going through a difficult time. His parents were divorced. He lived with his mom and sister on less than $1,300 a month. And they moved around so much that he went to four different high schools. Some nights Jay wasn’t sure he’d ever have the opportunity to play pro basketball, and some nights he wasn’t sure his family would have enough to eat the next day.
Jay did continue to play in junior college, though, then attended the University of Redlands. Because of his family’s financial situation and with an understanding that many athletes suffer financially soon after retirement, Jay pursued a career in finance. After four years, he realized he still had a passion for sports and wanted to find his way back to that passion. In 2014, the opportunity to become a sports agent fell right into his lap. And one year later, on January 22 to be precise, he launched his own sports agency.
Managing top talent around the world, Jay Field never forgot his dreams of playing pro basketball. And he knew he wasn’t the only athlete out there who had the skill but lacked the opportunity to pursue their dreams. So he put his business talent to work for his sports passion — and he created a platform to give athletes, coaches and fans the chance to be seen and heard, and more importantly, to tell their stories. And he brought together a team that shares his vision
