Ruthie Bolton AgentFormer WNBA All-Star and two-time Olympic gold medalist Ruthie Bolton surprised the participants of the Golden State Warriors youth basketball camp on July 14 when she dropped by for a visit. Over 100 kids listened to her with their undivided attention as she told them about how working hard, embracing challenges and keeping a positive attitude are critical to achieving success. The attendees of the camp were all between the ages of 7 and 15 and took her advice very seriously, especially as she reminded them that it is important not to let fear get in the way of their dreams and becoming whatever they want to be. Bolton told the kids some of her own stories and obstacles that she faced to get where she is today, including having to convince her coach in college that she was worthy to play on the team.

The Mississippi-born Guard started out at Auburn University for four years where she was on the team with her older sister, Mae Ola Bolton. She fought really hard to get the spot on that team, but her efforts finally paid off when she was called to the United States national team in 1994 and competed in the World Championships in Sydney winning the bronze. Thereafter she went on to win two gold medals at the 1996 and 2000 Olympics and another at the FIBA World Championships in 1998 in Berlin. From 1997-2004 Bolton played for the Sacramento Monarchs and after her retirement she stayed with the team to work in their front office specializing in public relations.

Bolton surprised a group of kids earlier this month by showing up at their youth basketball camp that was hosted by the Golden State Warriors, and they couldn’t have been more excited to get pumped up by a pro that is the definition of adversity.

Jen Welter AgentHistory has been made in the NFL this summer as the very first full time female coach has been hired by the Arizona Cardinals. Her name is Jen Welter and she has proven herself to be a valuable asset to what once was only thought to be a man’s world, and she will certainly be adding diversity to the program and professional football. The Florida native was brought on as a training camp and preseason coach at the end of July, and despite not having any experience playing football it is believed that she will be able to help the Cardinals get ready for the new season this fall in a big way. This is a great movement by the NFL because it is showing how the culture of this country is starting to broaden their horizons and be more open minded to an equal equality working environment in male dominant fields like sports.

Welter might be new to coaching in the NFL, but she is not new to the sport or to coaching overall. She was the coach for “semi-pro” women’s football and even led Team USA to win gold medals in the 2010 and 2013 American Football Women’s World Championships. In addition to that, earlier this year she was introduced to the Texas Revolution as their linebackers and special teams coach which is when she really got her foot in the door to this opportunity with the NFL. Welter isn’t even just a sports fan and enthusiast, but she also studied sport psychology and got her master’s in that field from Boston College and her PhD in it from Capella University.

Welter is officially the first woman to coach a men’s professional football team and hopefully she won’t be the last. As long as a person, no matter male or female, can do the job better than anyone else they should be given the chance to show that neither race nor gender has a barrier on that.

reggie evans agentSacramento Kings forward Reggie Evans hosted a charity softball game that benefited the Reggie Evans Foundation on July 19. The game kicked off at 7 p.m. at Blue Wahoos Stadium, and fans were able to purchase VIP tickets for $35 that included a meet and greet reception at Hancock Bank Club beforehand. If people were only going to the game itself it was just a mere $8 which is a fantastic price for any sporting event, and it was an amazing opportunity for adults and kids alike. In addition to Evans, other familiar faces from the NBA such as DeMarcus Cousins, Quincy Acy, Darren Collision, and Michelle Snow participated in the game. There were also items auctioned off that featured autographed basketball shoes from many other superstars such as Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Derrick Rose. It was a fun filled experience for everyone who attended and a rare opportunity to see the NBA players do something off the courts.

The Pensacola native attended the Coffeyville Community College for two years before transferring to the University of Iowa. After for years of school he entered the 2002 NBA Draft and was not selected by a team, but he ended up signing with the Seattle SuperSonics as a free agent which is where he became known for his great ability to rebound. Following his time in Seattle he also played for the Denver Nuggets, Philadelphia 76ers, Toronto Raptors, Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets and the Sacramento Kings. Even though it is highly speculated that Evans will be staying with the Kings, he has not confirmed anything except saying that he is going to be on a team.

Evans and a few fellow NBA players participated in a charity softball game earlier this month and it was a lot of fun for basketball and softball fans alike.

Tim Tebow Speaking FeePhiladelphia Eagles newly signed quarterback Tim Tebow spoke at an event this month in the Murphy’s Center in Murfressboro, Tennessee in which he stated how important religion can be for a person, especially someone who has to live under the pressure of the public eye and perform in the professional sports world. Tebow gave credit to his God for showing him how to live simply and humbly all while having to work his hardest to advance in his football career. He called upon his fellow athletes to investigate Christ on their own to see what he could do for them and how amazing things can happen once they open their minds to it. The former Bronco admitted that it is hard to remember who we are in today’s world full of technology, but with a little faith everything can be easier.

The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner grew up in a homeschooling environment, but eventually went to the University of Florida for his college education due to getting an athletic scholarship for the institution. He entered the 2009 NFL Draft and was selected by the Denver Broncos who had him on the roster for two seasons before getting traded to the New York Jets. In April of this year, Tebow signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles so there is a good chance that we’ll be seeing him on the field again. The quarterback is often remembered for his iconic prayer pose after making a touchdown during games, and is also very outspoken about his faith and its importance to him.

Tebow spoke at a Christian event in Murfreesboro, TN this July to encourage his fellow athletes to embrace religion and Christ, saying that it would open the door to so many more amazing possibilities.

Edgerrin James AgentFormer Colts running back Edgerrin James has been out of the NFL for a few years now, but still manages to host yearly free football camps in his hometown of Immokalee, Florida. James says that his main reason for doing this is because he feels that it is important to give kids the feeling that they can accomplish what they want to and get to the pros just as he has. The four-time Pro Bowl player always feels the need to go home to his roots, because that is where his family is and that is where he started out playing football before he made it big. Going home and partaking in these camps gives him a chance to be a fan at future professionals’ games and he finds it necessary to help those kids get there.

The 2008 NFL Champion is a home-grown Floridian and even went to college at the University of Miami where he played with the Hurricanes until he entered the 1999 NFL Draft. He was selected by the Indianapolis Colts as the 4th overall pick and played with the team for six years before going to the Arizona Cardinals for two more years, and then the Seattle Seahawks for his last year in his professional career. James ranks number three for rushing yards in the history of the University of Miami’s football team and was even inducted into their hall of fame in 2009. Today he still lives in the Miami area with his family and is loving every minute of it, but does take every opportunity he can to get back home to Immokalee.

James is back home again this summer to host his annual free football clinics and is completely thrilled to do so. It is one of the things that he feels that he can contribute to the community that gave him his passion and drive to success in the sport.

Brett Favre AgentRetired NFL quarterback Brett Favre returned home to Green Bay to get inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame on July 18 at Lambeau, and he was completely stunned to see that thousands of fans attended the event and cheered him on endlessly as he came down that tunnel to the field one more time. Favre was very humbled and told the audience that he could not have done it without them, his fans, and is very thankful to the team for such a great honor. Even the president of the Green Bay Packers was there to welcome Favre back into the stadium that he helped make a legacy in the 1990s. People were chanting from the stands so loud that it just left the quarterback speechless.

The two-time NFC Champion and Super Bowl XXXI Champ was born in Mississippi, and was even given a scholarship to attend Southern Mississippi for his college education. He entered the 1991 NFL Draft and was selected by the Atlanta Falcons only to switch over to the Green Bay Packers the following year, with him he played with for an incredible 15 years. After leaving the Packers he did a year with the New York Jets and then two more with the Minnesota Vikings before retiring for good in 2010. He is one of the icons of the NFL and is known internationally for his great skills on the field and determination to help his team win. His famous number four jersey has also been officially retired by Green Bay, as no one else could ever replace the star.

Favre returned back to Lambeau this month to receive his induction into the Green Bay Hall of Fame, and couldn’t have been more speechless by the crowd that turned out. Just when he thought that he might not have any fans left with some of the turbulence surrounding his departure from the team, he was proven wrong in the best way possible.
