For James Cooper being a sports agent is more than simply acting as a sherpa for his client’s monetary value. He’s passionate about the human aspect of the game because he played intercollegiate sports and knows the score. Cooper attended Eastern Illinois University on an athletic scholarship where he played Defensive Back End on their Division I football team. Additionally, he graduated from Florida A&M University College of Law. Since then, he’s worked as a Football Recruiting Coach for Next College Student-Athlete, the largest athletic recruiting platform service for college-bound athletes, as well as Membership Service Representative with the Miami Dolphins. These experiences have afforded him the opportunity and knowhow to provide zealous representation for the professional athletes he represents. Cooper’s ability to connect with his clients allows him to personalize a career game plan with high levels of communication and attention. This way his clients can realize their career vision without losing their focus on the playing field.  Mostly, Cooper loves his job because helping athletes achieve their goals puts Cooper at peace.
