Alexandria native Adam Richelieu was named an honoree in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list Class of 2020 for his work in the National Football League, Forbes announced on Tuesday.

The list includes 30 honorees for each of 20 categories. Richelieu, pictured at right, was recognized in the sports category.

As a liaison between the NFL Players Association and NFL agents, Richelieu brokered an agreement to standardize the language in rookie contracts, according to Forbes. He also helped increase position-specific contract values. As a result of the change, wide receiver salaries are 35 percent higher than they’ve been the past three years.
