About Grand Central Football
(Formerly Ascend Athletics)

Our mission is to foster a community built on unwavering values of Loyalty, Integrity and Grit. We relentlessly pursue our vision, which is to lead and support the greatest athletes in the world, on and off the field. 

3 AGENTS - 1 PLAYER

You will have 3 agents at your disposal at any time. Whether you are on the East or West Coast, we have contacts that spans across the country.

EXCLUSIVITY

We are selective about the players we recruit. Unlike most agencies, we limit the amount of players that we sign each and every year.

ANALYTICS

Grand Central Football is the industry leader when it comes to on-field and off-field analytics, giving our players the edge to keep them in the NFL Longer than any other agency.
