NUMBERS DON'T LIE
Chris played football at the University of Texas where he won the national championship in 2005 and was named an Academic All-American in 2008. He was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the 2009 NFL Draft and went on to play six seasons in the NFL. He retired in 2015, returned to the University of Texas and received his MBA from the McCombs School of Business in 2017. Prior to founding All Purpose Sports Advisory (APSA), Chris has worked in private banking for JP Morgan and business development for the National Football League.
During his 6 seasons in the NFL. Chris saw many players dealing with emotional distress caused by the fear of their playing days coming to a close. He noticed a severe knowledge gap among his peers when it came to personal financial management and fiscal responsibility. During his MBA program at McCombs, he shared these experiences and presented ideas to Dr. John Burrows, University of Texas professors Rob Adams and Stephen Courter, and his business school cohort on solutions to improve athlete transitions. From here, he developed a suite of advisory and concierge services that include but aren’t limited to educating athletes at all levels on how to manage their money, making smart investment decisions, and building new careers after their sports playing days are over. Based on successes working with professional athletes and at the Big 12 SAAC, Chris began looking for opportunities to help other athletic conferences to improve transitioning or post-playing outcomes for athletes everywhere.
