Sandhu, a native of Vancouver, is perhaps one of the biggest names in the National Football League off the field. He has been representing professional athletes since 1999 and his company, Elite Athlete Management, represents some of the biggest names today in the game including the likes of NFL Rookie of the Year Odell Beckham Jr. (New York Giants), Super Bowl Champion LeGarrette Blount (New England Patriots), Super Bowl Champion Ricardo Lockette (Seattle Seahawks), Super Bowl Champion Alvin Bailey (Seattle Seahawks) and Jarius Wright (Minnesota Vikings) to name a few.
One of Sandhu’s clients who will be hoping to make a big splash later this month is Vancouver’s own Christian Covington, the defensive tackle who played collegiately at Rice University and high school football locally with the Vancouver College Fighting Irish.
