The most powerful people in sports are often individuals that the general public has never heard of. Men and women whose faces are anonymous are responsible for many of the teams and players that fans root for night in and night out. Although he grew up playing basketball, Jahi Rawlings was drawn more to the people behind the scenes than he was with the players on the court.
