"This is really important to be here," Lewan said. "I'm here to give back and help out my teammate."
The company is called the Compass Mangement Group, founded by Ross graduate Dan Sillman.
Brandon Graham and DeSean Jackson are featured in the article, as prime examples of properly managing money. Other clients include Manny Harris and Brandon Minor.
It's a great read, and very relevant, given the impending lockout and general monetary issue that so many pro athletes face. Within 2 years of retirement, 78% (!) of all NFL players are in financial trouble (or worse).

As a huge BG fan, I was happy to hear about how well he had been doing in training camp/pre-season for Philly (e.g., some observers predicting he could be NFL Def Rookie of the Year).
After this busy sports weekend, I realized I had missed the Philly-Packers game and I mosied over to the box score to see how BG had done. Unfortunately, he didn't show up (i.e., zero tackles). He wasn't hurt, and played a lot of the game, he just didn't make any tackles.
It's only one game, I am sure in his next game he'll return to awesomeness, but in a town that has notoriously tough fans, I hope he gets it going soon.
Thought I'd post this, in case other's had missed, in the aftermath of our ND victory euphoria, how BG did during his first pro game. Here's an article which describes BG's game:
Not a big fan of the guy, but Morgan Trent had a big day for the Bungles with 3 picks, 2 tackles.
Brandon Graham also showed up tonight with his first sack (yea, it's preseason, but I'm sure it was a big moment for him) as well as another TFL.
ESPN Box Score Honorable mention: Avant 1 catch, Leon Hall and Dhani Jones w/ 2 tackles each.
Tonight is BG's debut as a NFL bonecrushing DE. He did not start but has played every drive since. So far, he's had one great QB pressure and hit, and has been featured twice by the announcers. Updates of note to follow.
