Finding your niche in the Sports Agent World

Cleveland Browns longsnapper Ryan Pontbriand signed a 4 year extension with the team on Wednesday (the details were not disclosed). Pontbriand is considered one of the premier longsnappers in the league, playing in 59 games since 2003. Since joining the Browns Pontbriand has helped punter Dave Zastudil (44.0 yard average) and kicker Phil Dawson (27 field goals) set career bests.
Although I was unable to determine who represents Pontbriand, I did come across the agent who represents a large number of longsnappers, Kevin Gold. Kevin runs the website Longsnap.com, a website dedicated exclusively to long snappers and the art of long snapping. The point? Kevin Gold could have been like many other sports agents in the industry, fighting tooth and nail to get clients. Instead, he has created a niche for himself and his clients come looking for him.
