National Sports Agency was started in 1982, truly by accident by its founder and President, Harold C. Lewis. While throwing batting practice for the 1982 World Champion St. Louis Cardinals, he became very close with many of the NFL St. Louis Cardinal players working out at the same stadium. After one Cardinal player was released from the team, having not heard from his agent in months, he asked Harold for help in finding him a new team to play the game he loved.
After not only finding him a new team, he created something that most players only heard of and owners never wanted to hear about, a “Guaranteed Contract!!” Word spread fast.
Within three years, NSA had over a dozen extremely happy and talented players without ever visiting a college campus. Those happy players helped to create the foundation for NSA’ s early success by spreading the word to other players of the services and diligence that Harold exhibited, in turn creating an influx of new talent to his newly born company.
