At first, Gaston felt nervous about approaching Fox—by that point a longtime friend—with agency business. But to the Fox family, it was a nonissue. “Why wouldn’t we do this?” asked Fox’s father, Aaron. The trust between Gaston and the Foxes ran deep. Because Gaston wasn’t registered as an agent, though, Walters became the lead agent. After a year with Walters, it became clear to Fox and Gaston that they could manage De’Aaron’s career without outside help. After all, Gaston had formal agency experience, and he had already started studying for his agent certification, with the goal of getting registered and representing Fox himself.
