Former collegiate star, sports agent, and NFL Executive Michael Huyghue recounts his journey in professional sports and the challenges that remain for minorities to success as front office executives in the multi-billion dollar sports industry.
The author’s journey as an athlete and lawyer provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse of what goes on behind closed doors in the world of professional sports and collegiate athletic programs. It is also a not often told chronicle of growing up black and male in white suburban America.
