Lattich Kinsler has agreed to join Lifestyle Sports Agency as the new Head of Football Operations.
Born in New Jersey, Kinsler was a former NFL player who moved on to representing players and became a successful real estate investor.
Kinsler’s rise began from humble beginnings.
At a young age, he learned discipline, work ethic and perseverance from his father, Hinton Kinsler, who was inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame.
Kinsler, who also earned a black belt in karate, credits his father’s athletic success. In high school, Kinsler was an outstanding multi-sport athlete (football, basketball, and track). After receiving scholarship offers in each sport, he accepted a football scholarship from the University of Cincinnati. He was a four-year starter with the Bearcats and finished his UC 5th all-time run in interceptions. The Pittsburgh Steelers signed Kinsler as a priority free agent in the 1994 NFL Draft.
Along with the Steelers, he spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets but did not appear in a regular season game. He ended his professional career by playing two seasons in the now-defunct Football League.
Following his playing career, Kinsler became a real estate investor. But he returned to sports. He joined a sports management company where he spent more than a decade learning the business of professional athletics, negotiating contracts, cultivating relationships, and building on his experiences as a former athlete.
“I have not had the success that I envisioned as a player, but I have developed long-term relationships with former coaches/teammates who currently coach or hold positions in the front office of the NFL. This allows me to receive honest ratings and feedback on my clients from decision matters” . Kinsler told Empire Sports Media.
Kinsler is returning to the sports agency business after a five-year hiatus. He spent time away training and preparing his son, Jordan Kinsler, for high school football.
“There was no way to continue working in the business and not prepare my son to become a successful high school athlete. I wanted to make sure he had every opportunity to reach his goals as a student and as a football player,” Kinsler said.
Jordan is currently a freshman at Rutgers University.
Kinsler has finally decided to return to the sports agency business with his son weaving his football career.
“I felt this was the perfect time to resume my career and make an impact on the lives of athletes,” Kinsler said. “It’s not a job, it’s my passion.”
Kinsler is the childhood friend of LifeStyle Sports Agency founder and CEO Omar Cooper. The Agency prides itself on its operational process and culture of development both on and off the field. They are looking to represent more high-ranking individuals who want to be great people and great players.
As Chief of Football Operations for the LifeStyle Sports Agency, Kinsler’s role will be critical to identifying potential NFL players, overseeing team/professional training, assisting with contract negotiations, and cultivating comprehensive relationships with the athletes and their families.
Kinsler has a lot of experience helping athletes navigate through the ups and downs of their careers. He loves the process required for athletes to increase their abilities. He wants athletes to have the same mindset. For him, this is a way of life.
“There is no shortcut to success,” Kinsler said.
The Atlanta-based Lifestyle Sports Agency is a full service management company that represents athletes in basketball and football. LSA athletes include Isaac Okoro of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Atlanta Hawks Sheriff Cooper, Tia Cooper of the Los Angeles Sparks, and Las Vegas Aces Derica Hamby.
