NFL Perks: Training Camp Swag for Scooby and Gronk
Rosenhaus Sports Agency manages the top talent in the NFL, including former Arizona Wildcats Rob Gronkowski and Scooby Wright III.
Summer is almost over, and as a result, most football players are back in camp whether they are playing in the NCAA or the NFL. No matter what their age, or how much money they make, the players appreciated the thought, and it’s given them an extra boost.
Former Arizona Wildcat Rob Gronkowski did, we reached out to him to get his reaction, here’s what he told us,“KCB is always looking out. It felt like I was back in Tucson and my parents send me a package to get through the summer.” That’s what we were thinking, how fun! There’s nothing like the feeling of being taken care of.
That’s what Rosenhaus Sports agency, headed up by super sports agent Drew Rosenhaus, and their PR partner KCB Sports Marketing thought too! Together, they dreamt this wonderful idea to support their sponsors AND their clients. They put together individual special Training Camp Survival Packages.

How did they do it?
The KCB Sports Marketing team worked for weeks with the sponsors gathering information including each player’s mobile devices, preferred gaming system, college and hometowns to personalize each Care Package, according to Director of PR, Cristina Alor.
“We work with the best players and the best companies out there. We love sending our guys the latest products on the market year-round,” said Robert Bailey, President of Rosenhaus Sports. “We just wanted to welcome our clients back to another great season of football.”
If you can imagine, packaging 110 custom individual shipments, was no easy task. It was, however, a labor of love done over the course of two or three weekends in a garage of one of the KBC Sports Marketing Executives.
After sorting the stuff out and putting it all back together, without making any mistakes (could you imagine?), and the multiple trips to FedEx, their team succeeded in having the deliveries arrive in perfect time for the beginning of Training Camp.
Hopefully the package Scooby received helps him get through training camp. So far he is doing just fine in the NFL. Last Sunday he tackled two Green Bay Packers in his NFL preseason debut.
Seems like Wildcats parents everywhere can take notice and create packages for their own sons and daughters, as a result we’re positive they will greatly appreciate the thought and effort!
Seems like a good idea to see if KCB have any left over? Here’s how you can reach out: Rosenhaus Sports (@RosenhausSports) KCB Sports Marketing (@KCBSports).
