Notice to Sports Agents
As part of the Lamar Athletic Compliance program, we are making a great effort to assist all those connected with the Lamar University Athletic Department in understanding certain areas of NCAA legislation. As a potential sports agent, financial advisor, or attorney for student-athletes, you should be familiar with certain NCAA regulations and their effect on the student-athlete’s eligibility if they are not followed. Therefore, listed below you will find a brief summary of relevant NCAA legislation. Please feel free to share this information with any professional colleagues that you feel may benefit from this information. If you wish to contact a Lamar University student-athlete regarding representation as a sport agent, you must first register with the State of Texas as part of the Texas Athlete Agent Act. You may do so by contacting Guy Joyner in the Office of the Secretary of State at (512)-475-0775, or write to:

Once you have registered with the State of Texas, you may contact a student-athlete at Lamar ONLY through Mr. Paul Zeek, Associate Athletic Director – Compliance. You may call Mr. Zeek at (409)-880-2248.
