Rising Star Management Group Signs 2016 Olympic Hopeful Brent Metcalf


Mar 31, 2016

MOORESVILLE, N.C. (March 31, 2016) - Freestyle wrestler Brent Metcalf, a hopeful for the 2016 Olympics in Rio and the top-ranked competitor in the 65-kilogram weight class, has tabbed Rising Star Management Group (RSMG) as his marketing and representation agency of record. Metcalf becomes the first wrestler on RSMG's roster of clients, which includes NASCAR drivers Michael Annett, Parker Kligerman and Kyle Benjamin, among others.

Hailing from Davison, Mich., Metcalf is one of the country's most decorated wrestlers. A four-time champion in the U.S. World Team Trials, he also scored two championships apiece in the U.S. Open, the World Cup and the NCAA Tournament, the latter as a member of a University of Iowa team coached by the legendary Tom Brands. In 2008, Metcalf became the first college sophomore to win the Dan Hodge Trophy, awarded annually to the nation's most outstanding collegiate wrestler.

"Rising Star Management Group has presented me with a great plan for the future, with a goal of maximizing my journey to this summer's Olympics," said Metcalf. "I'm thrilled to be the founding client for their wrestling division. Their passion for the sport and knowledge and experience within the sports marketing landscape are what led me to choose them. I'm honored to have RSMG in my corner."

"Brent will make a tremendous representative for our country at the Olympic games, and will represent companies and brands in a similar manner going forward," said Kurt Smith, president and founder of RSMG. "We're excited to welcome him to the fold. His commitment to his craft is something with which we at RSMG identify."
