Combine and Draft Prep
Peter Schaffer and the Authentic Athletix Team have proven success in preparing athletes for the combine and/or draft process.
Selecting pre-draft training is one of the most crucial decisions that a prospect can make. We utilize the services of training programs all over the country. In particular Joel Raether of Authentic Performance in Denver and Derek Touchette’s TAP program in Naples have yielded outstanding results for us over the years. Hakeem Nicks and Phil Taylor are just 2 of our clients who moved up to be selected in the 1st round after successful pre-draft training.
The other key to successful draft preparation is tireless communication with scouts, personnel directors, coaches, and general managers. Whether it is the NFL, MLB, or NBA, there is no group with a greater contact directory than Peter and the Authentic Athletix team.
We have an outstanding track record of raising our clients’ draft stock and resulting in higher selections on draft day.
We approach every contract negotiation with discipline,
commitment and the understanding that the contract is critical to our clients long term security. We have made eight NFL athletes the highest paid players at their position.
We have extensive experience in securing and negotiating both local and national endorcement deals for our athletes. Sourcing corporate partners, negotiating deals and servicing those contracts are critical to maximizing players revenue potential.
Peter's contact and connections in the media are unequaled in the industry. Our clients receive more national exposure and premiere interview sound bites as a result of the team’s extensive contacts
Authentic Athletix believes that we and the athletes we represent, should give back to the community. We believe that it is incumbent upon all our clients to return the blessings they have received to their communities.
Over the course of 29 years of existence, Authentic Athletix has developed a substantial network of industry leaders. We leverage our relationships within that network to ensure that our clients make smooth transitions out of professional sports into secondary careers.
