Nick Sanchez ’95

After a stint as Bulldogs quarterback, Nick Sanchez ’95 shifted his competitive focus to the courtroom. Now the California litigator is headed back for the huddle, where he’ll be calling plays of a different kind—as sports agent for his kid brother Mark. The younger Sanchez, starting QB for the University of Southern California, recently announced that he’ll forgo his final year of college eligibility and enter the NFL draft in April. He has reportedly tapped Nick to represent him. The choice drew some Monday morning quarterbacking in the blogosphere, on the theory that it’s rarely a good idea to do business with a family member, especially one whose experience is in business litigation rather than representing pro athletes. Then again, Nick Sanchez is no benchwarmer: SuperLawyers magazine ranked him as a Southern California Rising Star in 2008.
