He was 12 years old and already standing at 6 feet tall when he decided what he wanted to do when he grew up: Be the next Kobe Bryant.
By the time he was a freshman, he had already lived in dozens of different cities. Growing up in a household living on less than $1,300 a month, there were nights where he wasn’t sure he’d ever have the opportunity to play pro basketball, and some nights where he didn’t even know if his family would have enough to eat the next day.
But Jay Field didn’t let that stop him from excelling at his passion. He poured his heart and skill onto that basketball court. And it paid off. As a high school freshman basketball player, he was already catching the attention of college coaches and recruiters. But he quickly got lost in the recruitment shuffle when the financial strain on his family caused him to move from city to city — attending four different high schools. And he couldn’t afford to pay the funds that would put him back on the scene — the AAU circuit.
Jay continued 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 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.
