The Road to Pro Football, Featuring UNC Linebacker Cedric Gray and NIL Agent Pet Sumner: Pt. 1
We’ve still got football fever after an historic SuperBowl featuring two Black quarterbacks! In today’s episode I’m joined by UNC Tar Heels Inside Linebacker, Cedric Gray, along with his NIL agent, Pet Sumner, who has a story that embodies the conversations we have on this show–a turning point; a life event that changes everything.
We’re talking about navigating the change from recreational athlete, to collegiate sports, to pro. The strategy, family conversations, and anxiety-producing scenarios that we aren’t typically privy to. What’s it like transitioning from amateur to pro sports? And what in the world is “NIL”!?!
