Gridiron Development Football League Partners with Amplify Your Performance, LLC ~ Promoting Springbak Springsoles

Baton Rouge, LA-On March 20, 2012, Gridiron Developmental Football League joins forces with Amplify Your Performance, LLC to implement Springbak Springsoles into the league for the 2013 season. The companies have become partners in order to promote health, longevity and integrity in the GDFL while increasing the athletic performances for league participants.

 Amplify Your Performance, LLC specializes in a variety of legal performance enhancing products for athletes and other materials geared towards athletic performance. The company is best known for its Springbak®Springsoles, currently the only patented, scientifically proven performance-enhancing insole on the market. The Springbak®Springsoles are designed to increase an athlete’s agility and strength while protecting the body through shock absorption – resulting in longer careers. Scientists and medical personnel have worked together to create the Springbak’s to have a dual effect – spring and bio-electrical. The spring effect increases the athletic ability which is measured and documented through higher verticals, faster timed races, increased stride lengths, and other measurable physical activity. The bio-electrical effect accelerates the vibration frequency or the current flow in the human body resulting in more energy. Today, the Springbak®Springsoles are gaining national attention as athletes ranging from high school students to NFL first round draft picks and Olympic athletes actively seek company CEO Eric Louis’ advice on increased athletic performance and specifically the Springbak®Springsoles.

“As a former professional athlete, I know the advantages in having a competitive edge while in competition,” Louis explained during a press conference, “When I started this company, I know most athletes are both looking for and wanting that competitive edge, unfortunately the majority find the edge using ILLEGAL performance enhancers. I wanted to provide products that would not only propel athletes to a new level of competition, but also protect their bodies in order to extend their projected career timelines, LEGALLY.”

Beginning in June 2013, Gridiron Developmental Football League participants will have the opportunity wear Springbak®Springsoles. Based on the scientific findings from Amplify Your Performance’s research team, the new implementation should result in more athletic, agile athletes and over time, longer, healthier careers for the players.

Springbak Sponsors No.1 Ranked BYU Rugby for 2012-13 Seasons

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Springbak Sponsors No.1 Ranked BYU Rugby for 2012-13 Seasons

Springbak announces official sponsorship of BYU Rugby with performance footwear.

Roundy leads the nation in scoring, but he can pretty much walk around campus in anonymity.

But that’s not the only difference between Roundy, who has recorded the most “trys” (analogous to touchdowns in football) in the country, and Cougar athletes like Jake Heaps or Jimmer Fredette.

At BYU, rugby is an extramural sport, which means Roundy does not receive an athletic scholarship or preferential treatment, unlike most of those who play NCAA-sanctioned sports such as football and basketball. He holds down a part-time job at Banana Republic at the local mall, and he pays team dues and chips in to cover travel costs. The team travels by bus to its destinations, and on the road, players stay at the homes of members of the LDS Church.

BYU Rugby uses the Springbak Springsoles in their program for many reasons. The Springsoles increase their stride length and quicken stride frequency, this makes for a much faster athlete. The Springbak Springsoles enables athletes to be quicker to the ball, have quicker reaction times, kick with more power and control, and more endurance are all contributing factors in BYU Rugby’s No. 1 National ranking. Go Cougars!

The Cougars are ranked No. 1 in the nation. When Roundy isn’t attending classes, studying or working, he’s devoting about 30 hours a week to rugby. A portion of that time is spent in the trainers’ room to be treated for a variety of injuries. Rugby players routinely hurt their ankles, shoulders and knees. Roundy sustained 13 stitches to his forehead after a 123-3 (no, not a misprint) victory over Wyoming on April 1.

“Our focus is school, then rugby,” Roundy said. “It’s a great balancing act, but it keeps things interesting.”

Why do Roundy and his teammates play this dangerous, unglamorous, and relatively obscure sport?

“We’re out here because we love the game. It’s something fun to do while we go to school,” he said. “Rugby is a fast game. Everybody gets to run the ball, even the big guys. Everyone likes to get a little aggression out.”

Mikey Su’a, who plays the prop position, which he describes as a hybrid of a fullback and lineman in football, grew up watching and playing rugby. His father played for the Cougars in the 1970s.

“I just love fitting in with the tradition of BYU rugby,” Su’a said. “To be able to follow my dad’s footsteps, and wear ‘BYU’ on our chests, is incentive enough.”

But there’s another big reason why they play. The Cougars, who have established themselves as a perennial power in rugby, are vying once again for the national championship, which they last achieved in 2009.

“That’s the ultimate goal,” said Su’a.

This year, for the first time, the collegiate rugby national championship will be played in the state of Utah at Rio Tinto Stadium on May 21. The Cougars, who conclude their regular-season schedule Saturday (12:30 p.m.) at South Field in Provo against Arizona State, must first survive the quarterfinals and semifinals.

“We’re hoping to get to the title,” said vice-captain, and flyhalf, Dylan Lubbe. “I’m not predicting anything yet. We have a long road ahead of us.”

We’re proud to sponsor BYU Rugby for the 2012-13 seasons – Bill Crow CEO/Chairman Springbak Inc.

Springbak Sponsors Nebraska Huskers Women’s Volleyball for 2014-15 Seasons

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Springbak Sponsors Nebraska Huskers Women’s Volleyball for 2014-15 Seasons

Springbak announces the official sponsorship of Nebraska Huskers volleyball with their performance volleyball insoles.

John Cook, Nebraska Volleyball CoachThe philosophy of coach John Cook at Nebraska can be summarized in two simple words.

Dream Big.

When Cook took over the reins of the Nebraska volleyball program, the challenge facing him was daunting. Cook replaced one of the sport’s legendary coaches in Terry Pettit, who won 694 matches and guided the Huskers to 18 consecutive NCAA appearances and six national semifinals.

Cook, who left an emerging power in Wisconsin to guide the tradition-rich Husker program, had his own vision for Nebraska volleyball. He saw a program that had even more potential to grow. His goals included consistently selling out home matches at the NU Coliseum, expanding the media exposure for his program and most importantly, continuing the tradition of athletic and academic excellence started by Pettit nearly a quarter of a century earlier.

Cook saw the long-range potential of building the audience across the state. He also believed Nebraska could shine by hosting the sport’s championship in the largest setting college volleyball had ever seen.

When others saw risks, Cook saw opportunities.

The Huskers entered the 2006 campaign with many questions, as they were forced to replace three All-Americans, including AVCA National Player-of-the-Year Christina Houghtelling. With four first-year starters on the court, including freshmen at setter and middle blocker, and sky-high expectations with the NCAA Championships in Omaha for the first time, 2006 shaped up to be Cook’s toughest coaching job to date.

Nebraska took on all challenges head-on, going 33-1 and becoming only the third team in NCAA history to be ranked No. 1 the entire season. The Huskers went on the road and overcame a 2-0 deficit to defeat Minnesota to reach the national semifinals, marking the first time that Nebraska had won a regional outside the state. That victory set the stage for a watershed moment in college volleyball. Behind sellout crowds of over 17,000, the Huskers captured the school’s third national title with victories over No. 4 UCLA and No. 2 Stanford. Four players earned AVCA All-America honors, including Sarah Pavan, who became NU’s first Honda-Broderick Cup winner.

Two years later, the NCAA Championships returned to Omaha with another Husker team taking center stage.

An all-time NCAA attendance record of 17,430 traveled through a winter storm to witness one of the greatest matches in Nebraska’s illustrious history.  After dropping the first two sets to No. 1 Penn State, Nebraska fought back, winning the next two sets to hand the Nittany Lions their only set losses of the 2008 season. Although the Huskers were unable to complete the comeback, the performance symbolized a never-say-quit attitude that fueled the team’s success. Despite losing a pair of performers to season-ending injuries, the Huskers went 31-3 and won their fifth consecutive conference title. At the Seattle Regional, the Huskers overcame a 2-0 deficit to send the match to a fifth set and trailed 9-3 in the fifth set before regrouping and earning the school’s 11th trip to the NCAA semifinals. Jordan Larson, Tara Mueller and Sydney Anderson all earned All-America honors,  while Larson was named Big 12 Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year, becoming the first player in conference history to sweep both honors.

Consistent excellence has been a hallmark of Cook’s Nebraska squads. Over the last decade, Cook has guided the Huskers to a pair of national titles, five NCAA semifinal appearances and nine Big 12 titles. His teams have compiled a national-best 336-29 record, including a 207-13 Big 12 mark. Overall, Cook is 106-24 against ranked teams at NU, including a 20-11 mark against top-five teams.

In 2010 the Huskers won their 31st overall conference title and their 12th as a member of the Big 12 Conference with an overall record of 29-3. The team also made its 29th straight trip to the NCAA Tournament and improved its all-time record in tournament record to 82-26. The Huskers’ all-time AVCA All-America total reached 70 with Brooke Delano being named a first-team honoree, while Lindsey Licht and Hannah Werth were second-team picks. Werth was also tabbed as the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and Cook was named Co-Big 12 Coach of the Year.

Cook’s vision is for the Huskers to remain at the forefront of college volleyball to enhance the sport at both the local and national levels. Nebraska will enter 2011 with an NCAA-record 149 consecutive sellouts at the NU Coliseum – the longest sellout streak in NCAA women’s athletics.

“It is a reflection of Nebraska volleyball and the program, and not about one person or one player,” Cook said when accepting the AVCA Coach-of-the-Year Award in 2005. “We’re trying to be a leader in the sport. We’re trying to take risks and dream big, and fortunately I’m surrounded by a lot of people who have that vision. I’m really proud of what we’re doing to try and enhance the sport.”

Three Straight 30-Win Seasons Cook immediately started to create his own legacy after taking over for Pettit. In his first season at the helm, Cook was named the AVCA National Coach of the Year after guiding the Huskers to a 34-0 record and the 2000 national championship. The Huskers, who became just the second team in NCAA history to cap an undefeated season with a national title, were ranked No. 1 in the AVCA/USA Today Top 25 poll for 14 straight weeks.  Greichaly Cepero earned AVCA National Player-of-the-Year honors. Three Huskers claimed AVCA All-America certificates, and five Nebraska players were named to the All-Big 12 teams. Laura Pilakowski earned CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, and a conference-best seven Huskers earned academic All-Big 12 recognition.
In 2001, Cook’s second season, Nebraska fell just two wins short of capturing another NCAA title. The Huskers, who were ranked either No. 1 or No. 2 in the AVCA poll all season, went 20-0 in the Big 12 and Cook was named the Big 12 Coach of the Year. NU finished the season with a 31-2 record after falling to eventual national champion Stanford in the NCAA semifinals. Nebraska placed four players on the AVCA All-America teams, while right side hitter Nancy Metcalf was selected as an NCAA Top Eight Award winner and was also named the CoSIDA Academic All-American of the Year.  Pilakowski and Cepero joined Metcalf on the CoSIDA Academic All-America teams, as Pilakowski earned second-team honors and Cepero received third-team recognition.
In Cook’s third season, the Huskers continued their remarkable success. NU finished the season ranked fifth in the AVCA poll with a 31-2 record to secure its third straight 30-win season. Nebraska produced the most dominant conference season in school history, going 20-0 and losing just two sets en route to winning the league championship for the third straight year. Cepero and Amber Holmquist again earned first-team AVCA All-America honors, and Pilakowski was recognized on the second team. Pilakowski was named a first-team CoSIDA Academic All-American, and Holmquist was a second-team pick. Cepero, Holmquist and Pilakowski shared Big 12 Player-of-the-Year accolades.

Cook faced perhaps his greatest coaching challenge at Nebraska in 2003, when the Huskers had to replace three All-Americans and their first-ever libero.  That season, Cook opted to run a 6-2 (two-setter) offense to utilize as many players as possible. NU went on to finish the season with a 28-5 record and an appearance in the Sweet 16.

The 2004 season may have been one of Cook’s best coaching jobs, as a youthful squad that featured five freshmen and sophomores in the lineup went 30-2 and was ranked No. 1 heading into the NCAA Tournament. The Huskers led the nation in both opponent hitting percentage (.103) and blocks per game (4.02) before falling to two-time defending NCAA champion USC in five sets in the regional final. Three Huskers earned AVCA All-America honors, while Pavan was chosen as the AVCA National Freshman of the Year. That group of Huskers became the centerpiece of Nebraska’s consecutive NCAA Finals teams in 2005 and 2006.
Building the Badgers Cook, who served as an assistant under Pettit for three seasons from 1988 to 1991, took over the Nebraska head coaching job after serving as associate head coach during the 1999 season. Before returning to Nebraska in 1999, Cook led Wisconsin to six straight postseason appearances in seven seasons as the Badgers’ head coach.

Cook’s accomplishments at Wisconsin earned him praise as one of the game’s top young coaches. Cook built the Badgers into a top-10 program during his seven-year career in Madison, which included back-to-back trips to the NCAA regional finals in 1997 and 1998. In his final match at Wisconsin, Cook’s Badgers fell to the Huskers in a three-hour, five-set battle in the 1998 Pacific Regional Championship in the NU Coliseum. Wisconsin ended the season ranked seventh in the final USA Today/AVCA Coaches Poll with a 30-5 record.

We are proud to sponsor such a great program at Nebraska with our performance volleyball insoles.
