My athletic story and passion

My name is Bryan Rammel. I graduated from Florida Atlantic University (FAU) in May of 2018. I came to Boca Raton, aka Paradise, for the first time in 2012. I found FAU by sheer luck and proactiveness. I played football and soccer during High School, where I attended Henry County High School located in West Tennessee – Paris, Tennessee. During my playing career, I was a part of some fantastic teams that set state and school records. Our most significant achievement to this date is winning The 5A State Championship TWICE (sophomore and senior years). I personally set records for the school and state, which gained college coaches’ attention and opened my mind to play at the next level. I knew I wanted to leave Tennessee and attend a big school, so I worked hard on the field and off. I was getting attention and mail for kicking camps from Auburn, Ole Miss, and MTSU, so I knew I had enough talent for D-1 and could not sell myself short on the opportunity. I was committed, attending a few camps and ultimately preparing for the season of my life senior year.

Going into the Summer after Junior Year, my parents pushed me to start applying to and visiting schools. They are my rock who do everything in their power to support me and at this point in my life had blessed me with a subscription to a recruiting website which lead me to FAU. I had been in contact with the coaching staff under Carl Pelini and Pete Reskit. I also contacted coaches from Georgia Southern and decided to visit both programs before my senior year.

Unfortunately, as I was about to come to Boca in 2014, the coaching staff was let go due to unfortunate events, and my recruiting process was left unread. I visited Georgia Southern University (GSU), where I had another bad experience with a Graduate Assistant promising me a preferred walk-on spot and ghosting me/retracting the offer when I was about to visit. With all this factoring in, I was faced with a decision. I weighed out my options and decided that Boca Raton would be paradise. No matter if I played college sports or not.

I committed to going to FAU, where I did try out for the Football team but was beaten out by a now-NFL kicker. I could have been defeated, but I managed to push through. As an entrepreneur, I always find a way to turn pain into passion and find a way to achieve goals. I share all this to say this life is all about managing – I would like to help manage NIL opportunities and teach you about GOOD business along the way.
