Washington, D.C. based sports management firm, Dow Lohnes Sports & Entertainment proudly announced the signing of their entire 2013 draft class. The firm represents a distinguished group of more than 30 NFL players including Pro Bowlers Maurice Jones-Drew (Jaguars), Matt Forte (Bears) and Antoine Bethea (Colts).

President Adisa Bakari aims to provide clients with a comprehensive representation model that ensures long-term success in business and life, during and after their professional careers. “We want our clients to learn what it means to be a professional and that they're no different than corporate executives,” states Bakari. “The fact that they play football does not make them less of a business person than a traditional executive and it's important to understand what that entails.”
