Degree Men Turns Up the Heat on Mark Sanchez With New Adrenaline-Fueled Offseason Adventures Consumers Drive Sanchez's Offseason by Voting on Adventures to be Presented in Exclusive Online Video Series
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Football season is over, but it doesn't mean the pressures have ended for pro quarterback Mark Sanchez. Today, Degree Men® announced it has teamed up with Sanchez to give guys the power to decide his offseason schedule with the Degree Men Offseason Adventure Series – the second series of movement-centric challenges issued to Sanchez, which embody the new MOTIONSENSE™ technology offered exclusively in the Degree Men Adrenaline Series.
Now through April 9, fans can visit www.DegreeMen.com and vote unlimited times on four different adrenaline-fueled adventures for Sanchez to tackle this offseason. Sanchez will complete the top two vote-getting adventures, with all the action captured and shared through an exclusive online video series.
Offseason adventures for fans to vote on include:
- Flying with the Blue Angels: He plays for them, now let's put him in one. Mark will get his wings and take flight with the storied Blue Angels, experiencing the adrenaline-pumping G-force of an F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet. (The Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron does not endorse Degree Men, Mark Sanchez or the New York Jets)
- Rally Car Racing: Mark will slide behind the wheel and test the limits of man and machine around every knuckle-clinching turn as he learns the moves of a rally car race with the Team O'Neil Rally School.
- Training with the USA Rugby Team: The ultimate physical challenge on the body – football without pads. See if Mark can take the pressure as he trains with USA Rugby.
- Hockey Goalie for a Day: See if Mark has what it takes as we put him in the 'hot seat' on the ice to see if he can protect the goal against some of hockey's best slap shots.
"Degree Men is all about protecting guys during life's everyday movements while also keeping them cool during the adrenaline-fueled moments along the way," said Aaron Callaway, Senior Brand Building Manager, Unilever. "Mark Sanchez plays the toughest position for one of football's highest-profile teams and we're proud to work with him again on the Offseason Adventure program."
In 2011, Degree Men partnered with Sanchez to launch the first Offseason Adventure program to keep his adrenaline pumping during the pro football lockout. Consumers voted and sent Sanchez to battle the blazing heat of firefighter training with the Orange County Fire Authority, and he also took on the intense speeds of NASCAR by training with the pit crew from Junior Motorsports.
"Making game-changing moves in high-pressure situations is my job," said Mark Sanchez. "Last year Degree Men took my adrenaline to the next level with NASCAR racing and firefighter training, and I can't wait to push my offseason even more with a new set of adventures."
