The Leadership Team
R3vel & Vick Sports and Entertainment was founded by President Jeffrey Revel, who was born and raised in Prince Georges County, Maryland. Growing up in the PG area in the late 90s and early 2000s, Boys and Girls Club Sports had a major impact on the youth in the community. Jeffrey's views and career path in sports was shaped by his experience playing sports with his cousin and best friend, Lamar Anton Scott. They did everything together, from playing sports to video games and even deciding which college they would go to at only eight years old. Their goal was to go to North Carolina University and play Quarterback and Receiver. In 1999, seven days before Christmas, Lamar lost his battle with Leukemia. After his cousin's death, he lost his passion for playing sports but never lost the love for the game.
Jeffrey promised Lamar that he would continue their journey to make it to the professional league. While contemplating how to fulfill his promise to Lamar, he learned of super agent, Eugene Parker; who inspired him to become a sports agent. Parker epitomized the importance of black representation in the sports industry and the need for black role models that can inspire our youth to be more than just an athlete. After earning his BS in Accounting and MBA from Delaware State University, he became aware of the lack of athletes and entertainers with black representation. He noticed as young black men, we were taught that our only path in sports was to just be the athlete. For example, 60% of athletes in the NFL are black and less than 10% have black representation; his mission is to change that.
After reaching out to his childhood friends Rakeem Vick (Vice President) and PJ Miller (Director of Marketing), they believed in his vision and together decided to create a full service sports agency that will open prior to the 2022 NFL Draft.
Jeffrey Revel was born and raised in Prince Georges County, MD. Since the age of 13, Jeffrey has known where his career path was headed and that was becoming a sports agent. After learning about super agent Eugene Parker, he fell in love with the idea of not just being an athlete but wanting to do more to assist athletes behind the scenes.
Jeffrey then went on to attend one of the top HBCUs in the country, Delaware State University where he received his Bachelors of Science degree in Accounting and his MBA in 2018.

Rakeem's talent in the classroom and on the field has landed him a full athletic scholarship to one of the top HBCU's in the country North Carolina Central University where he received his bachelor's degree in Mass communication. During the 2nd game of his senior season Rakeem suffered a career ending injury that left him paralyzed. Rakeem suffered a bruised spinal cord, but was able to make a full recovery and had him rethink what was his purpose in life and sports moving forward.
After graduating Rakeem focused on his coaching career as he worked as a Graduate Assistant with the football team at North Carolina Central University in which he sharpened his skills on how to maximize a players potential on the field. After leaving sports, Rakeem used his communications degree and quickly grasped the corporate world by joining the management training program with Enterprise Rent a Car.
