Your GPA, and work experience looks good. Your previous experience as a athlete actually makes you a somewhat unique applicant and adds a strength as well. MBA programs want to see a diverse pool of applicants, and I don't imagine they have a lot of former division 1 athletes with your stats apply. Your GMAT is a little low for the schools you mentioned, but not super low for a domestic student. If you could get your GMAT up to a 730 you would be golden, but I think you could get in to one of the schools you have listed as you are now. If you are able to raise your GMAT 20 points or more, I would be confident applying. If you are unable to raise your GMAT, I would still apply, but also add 2 or 3 T20 schools like Virginia, University of North Carolina, UT Austin, UC Berkley, etc. You may also consider applying to a top European school like London Business School. LBS is typically considered up there with NYU, Columbia, Chicago, but typically has GMAT scores about 20 points lower that schools in the M7.

Hope I was able to help.
