Willis Sports Agents was founded to offer dedicated representation to athletes
who are serious about taking their game to the next level. As former athletes
and coaches themselves, our agents know how difficult it is to make it
to the big time. Having an agent who is highly trained in representing
and advocating for the best interests of his client should be the most
important factor you consider as you look to trust someone with your talent.
We make no excuses for our focus on ethical representation in this arena
of lucrative money, constant media attention, and cut-throat competition.
We are here to guide you in navigating your career to avoid the pitfalls
that have sabotaged so many talented players. When you trust us with your
career, you can be confident that we will provide honest and trustworthy
advice that is in your best interest. We consider you one of the family
and will treat you like it.
