In conjunction with the Florida State – Georgia Tech football game, and Parents Weekend activities, the FSU Athletic Department and Professional Sports Counseling Panel held an educational seminar and provided written materials covering topics that included purchasing disability insurance, determining NFL market value and draft status, agent and financial advisor selection, and NCAA agent regulations and the State of Florida Athlete-Agent Law.
Our featured guest speaker was former FSU and NFL great Hassan Jones. Mr. Jones is currently a successful businessman in Tampa, and spoke to the parents about what it was like for him as an FSU football player, preparing for a professional football career. The presentation was informal, which provided the football parents with the opportunity to ask numerous questions. The day was very enjoyable, and educational for all present. The Office of Compliance would like to thank all those who attended.
