MILFORD, Conn., Jan. 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- NFL Veteran Marshawn Lynch is partnering with Subway® restaurants to help guests 'Go Pro' and make better choices in the New Year. Lynch is featured in television commercials, social and digital advertising promoting new protein-packed choices and helping aspiring pros through the Subway® Pro Teen Awards.
Subway guests can now 'Go Pro' at participating restaurants with NEW! Protein Bowls or $2* double protein upgrades to Footlongs and Protein Bowls. The new offerings are the latest examples of how Subway continues to evolve its menu with more freshly-made options.
From the Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki to the Chicken and Bacon Protein Bowls, guests can build any Footlong into a Protein Bowl, with the same portion of protein, vegetables, cheese and sauce, just without the bread.**
Guests can 'Go Pro' when ordering in-restaurant, through the Subway® App, online or for Contactless Curbside pick-up at participating restaurants.

Subway and Lynch are also teaming up on a new national contest, geared towards high school athletes who had to forgo their football season due to the ongoing pandemic. Subway, with the help of NFL stars Marshawn Lynch and Keenan Allen, is launching the Subway Pro Teen Awards to celebrate future pros working to achieve their athletic dreams.
Beginning January 15, high school football players can submit a video of their best pro moves, craziest catches, hardest tackles and longest throws or kicks here for a chance to be one of 20 winning players.*** High school athletes are encouraged to submit entries, but coaches, teachers, parents, teammates and friends can submit entries on the high school athletes' behalf.
Winners will receive a personalized video from Lynch, an invitation to attend a virtual awards event with Allen, and a $1,500 scholarship from Subway.
Pro Teen winners will be judged by Lynch and Allen, along with public voting, and selected based on a three-part scoring system:
- 30% of score based on the number of votes on their video.
- 10% on how well the entry meets the contest theme.
- 60% based on judges' scoring (Lynch & Allen) of video entries based on skill/creativity captured in the video.
"Subway helps you power up and 'Go Pro' on and off the field with their new Protein Bowls and their Pro Teen Awards," said Lynch. "2020 was a year like we've never seen before, with many players having to sacrifice their season and slow down their hustle. I'm excited to be part of Subway's Pro Teen Awards and give high school athletes another chance to achieve their goals and celebrate the game. So check it out, and let's fuel up and get back out there together with Subway!"
