MILL CREEK, Wash., April 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Zipfizz Healthy Energy/Sport Drink Mix is proud to announce two time Pro Bowl football player Marshawn Lynch as the first athlete to join the Zipfizz Team. Whether it is before a big game or training throughout the off-season, Lynch has experienced the healthy benefits of Zipfizz.
"Beastmode is where I need to be to play my game at the highest level and Zipfizz helps me get there, high energy, without the crash," said Lynch. "I am excited to be a part of the Zipfizz Team."
Lynch will be appearing in the company's marketing and advertising campaigns as well as acting as a brand ambassador. Zipfizz is also committed to working with Lynch's charity Fam 1st Family Foundation. Zipfizz will be participating in the Family First Football camp. The camp provides 600 youth ages 6 – 18 years old the opportunity to work on their football skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork skills, while building self-esteem both on and off the field.
Lynch had a ground shaking 2010 season where he ran for a 67 yard touchdown to upset the defending Super Bowl Champions, the New Orleans Saints. The home field crowd's reaction to the run created seismic activity in Seattle. With Lynch having career highs in 2011 in rushing yards and a club record of 11 consecutive touchdowns, it's no wonder he re-signed for 4 years, $31 million.
"Marshawn Lynch is exactly the kind of athlete we want to work with. He is not only an outstanding athlete and football player, but he also believes in the Zipfizz product," said Executive Vice President Jason Stricevich of Zipfizz. "When I heard Marshawn was an option for partnership there was NO DOUBT in my mind that he's a PERFECT match!"
