"I’m proud to work with Anomaly because it remains crystal clear that in order for today’s athletes, at both the professional and college levels, to maximize the opportunities afforded them, they need consistent professional development and life skills training.”
“In my opinion, Anomaly Sports Group is the go to entity for name, image, and likeness education. They led an amazing and informative session on decision making and NIL for our ACC Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Through participating in Anomaly’s interactive workshop, our SAAC representatives felt more prepared to discuss and engage in NIL opportunities and were able to apply Anomaly’s decision making framework to help others in their roles as student leaders and within their career endeavors."
Shamaree Brown, Iowa State Sr. Associate AD for Student Services and former ACC Director of Student-Athlete Programs and Compliance
"The partnership with TeamAltemus and Anomaly has been invaluable for the A-10 membership’s student-athletes, coaches, staff and administrators, in addition to conference office officials. A great deal of uncertainty will continue to exist as student-athletes become more empowered in navigating their autonomy over their NIL, and their collective protective business education programming has been exceptional. They are industry leading experts who provide an outstanding service by catering and customizing programs to meet the needs of our student-athletes, in addition to the broader league constituency."
Jill Redmond, Executive Senior Associate Commissioner
“Luke spoke to our professional athletes’ education programs for football, baseball, men’s and women’s basketball and ice hockey about preparing for professional life, due diligence, financial literacy and contracts. He educated our athletes on how to run their own businesses, how to create your brand and persona and represent yourself, along with how to hire business advisors, what to look for and where you need to be careful. Luke is great in this space.”
Gene Smith, Vice President and Director of Athletics
“Partnering with Anomaly and TeamAltemus has helped Michigan State’s EverGreen program become one of the best in the country,” said Elliott Daniels, Michigan State Senior Associate Athletics Director for Student-Athlete Engagement. “We wanted to successfully position our student-athletes at the forefront of NIL and their collaborative DDMC protective education curriculum, implemented both virtually and in-person, allows us to empower our student-athletes to make well informed decisions as they build their brands in navigating potential NIL opportunities.”
Elliott Daniels, Senior Associate AD of Student-Athlete Engagement
“The reason Boise State chose to work with Team Altemus and Anomaly Sports for our NIL education is simply because they are the best. During my time working at the NCAA, I have watched closely the work they have done with the Elite Student-Athlete Symposium and their education is both dynamic and effective. When we get on a call with them, we know they are going to be prepared and they are going to keep our student-athletes attention for the full hour. They're the best!”

“As a non-agent, sports attorney, Luke Fedlam’s distinct profile makes him an incredible resource for the University of Texas’ Black Student-Athlete Summit. He has presented three times in the five-year history of BSA on the financial challenges athletes face, having a decision-making process for the off the field opportunities and the emerging name, image and likeness landscape. Luke’s work with Porter Wright and Anomaly, along with his dynamic presentation style strongly resonates with all three levels - administrator, coach and student-athlete – of our attendees alike.”

“Anomaly teamed up with the Raider's Rookie Success Program for a unique workshop format on the athlete decision making process off-the-field. Their REAP model was used in a financial scenario specifically tailored for professional football players. The information presented was clear and concise, and they took a complicated topic and broke the concepts down. It was an easy segue for me to then take their REAP model and apply it to personal relationship management decisions. Teaming the two topics produced an informative and compelling presentation for the players."

“I’ve had the opportunity to work with Anomaly Sports Group in multiple capacities. On all occasions it has been a great experience. Their expertise when presenting technical education is top-notch and practical, really meeting today’s athlete where they are. When working with administrators, that practicality remains when it comes to areas of life that apply to everyone such as: interviewing, networking and public speaking. Anomaly excels in collaboration, working closely with you on the curriculum, looking and listening for innovative ways to be impactful and should be considered a rising star in this space.”

“Anomaly Sports Group was an incredible professional development resource for the John McLendon Foundation. The McLendon Summit was our professional development program for 2019 McLendon Scholarship recipients as they began their journeys into college athletics administration. Anomaly received extremely positive and heartfelt feedback from our Scholars regarding the facilitation and presentation of each workshop. In addition, they were great to work with in all the planning and execution of what was supposed to be a one-and-a-half day program at the 2020 NACDA Convention, but instead became a virtual, seven-week program.”
