De Anna Guerreiro founded Athlon, a financial management agency for professional athletes, in 2020.

“When Glenn Gronkowski called me about the Texoma FC opportunity, it didn’t take us long to know this club was the right fit for us to invest in and bring value to the Texoma region,” Guerreiro said. “We are honored and humbled to be part of an amazing team, working with founders Simon Keizer and Ben Watson, and to be able to bring in our partners – the Gronkowski family and Matt Barnes – alongside the West family.”

Gordie Gronkowski Jr., eldest of the Gronkowski family, enjoyed a brief career in professional baseball. Gordie now owns and operates his own fitness brand.

Chris Gronkowski spent 3 years bouncing around in the NFL. During those 3 years, he was rostered by the Dallas Cowboys, Indianapolis Colts, and the Denver Broncos. After his NFL career, Chris Gronkowski went on to create the company Ice Shaker, which produces insulated water bottles.
