about us

We Love Sports

Our mission is providing our clients the chance to build an athletic career no matter what school or program they attended.

Mike Pannagio

Our co-founder Mike Panaggio’s commitment to sports started early, as a coach’s son. His father, Mauro Panaggio, was a star basketball player for The College at Brockport, and eventually became the Head Coach of the same team. Mauro left his mark at the professional level as the winningest coach in the history of the Continental Basketball Association, the former developmental league for the NBA.

Mike was a stand out college player in his own right, and played for his dad at Brockport, further cementing his passion for sports. Mike brought this competitive passion to business, and grew his company DME from a start-up employing seven people to a top marketing company that currently employs over 550 associates. Mike’s passion for sports remained strong, and as his success grew, so did his commitment to youth and pro sports.
