Dan Rodricks: Drew Hawkins and the mission to school pro athletes on money | STAFF COMMENTARY
The athlete, a Philadelphia Eagles player in his mid-20s, slumped in a chair next to his wife. “He’s about to get a second contract and we don’t have our financial affairs in order,” the wife said. “We have money. We make a lot of money. We spend a lot of money. And we need help.” Drew Hawkins, in the midst of a robust career in wealth management with Morgan Stanley, sat across from the couple, holding a pen and a yellow legal pad. The wife had asked for the meeting in hopes of getting advice from an expert. Hawkins started directing questions to the football player — nothing exotic, just simple questions about his contract with the Eagles, his income, investments, savings, expenses and charitable contributions.
