Now the two firms are expanding that relationship much further!  Speaklife

“Having known Rickey for many years and understanding his passion to help young kids through the vehicle of sports in the Oklahoma City metro area, while having a passion to help families and coaches, is what really attracted me to partner with Speaklife,” said Bryan Bedford, CEO and Founder of Bedford Agency.   “The ability to marry leadership, coaching, recruiting and sports together is something that is really needed in the Oklahoma City metro area,” -Bedford continued.

“The Bedford Agency is the premier company to provide insight and education to families about the recruiting process and educating families, player and coaches is part of our mission too….

While our summer events and camps are designed for younger aged kids, we believe that introducing this type of content to these families is impactful to help them be as prepared as possible when the recruiting process does kick off, and there is no better partner than the Bedford Agency” said Rickey Brady, Founder of Speaklife.
