Sasha Ghavami | Breaking through the NFL against all odds


Ghavami, who dreamed of being a player’s agent since he was a child, admits that without the local talent it would have been more difficult for him to reach this level.

“We are fortunate to have excellent local talent. In this sense, I consider myself very blessed. I always wanted to be an agent, I just didn’t know what sport. It’s thanks to Laurent a little that I got into football. « 

Between the NFL and the CFL, Ghavami represents about thirty athletes.

“I wanted to become the benchmark here in Quebec, I will not target Americans who come out in the first round of the draft. It’s important to create a niche for yourself and mine is here. « 

Ghavami, continues to practice law, he who is a lawyer by training. This allows him to have less to rely on player contracts for a living.

“I suggest that young people study law if they are interested, my reflexes in law have helped me a lot in my work as an agent. On the other hand, I would not suggest studying law, for the sole purpose of becoming an agent. It is not entirely necessary. « 

The young Montrealer emphasizes his passion for his work. He says he is extremely lucky.

“I am living a dream, it is a source of pride for me to evolve in the field that I love. I’ve been through ups and downs, it’s an extremely stressful job, but I’ve always told myself to make the most of it, because you never know when it’s going to end. « 

Ghavami admits that it is not easy to make a living from this profession.
