New England Patriots star tight end Rob “Gronk” Gronkowski has recently announced a deal with Monster Energy which continues to prove just how marketable the player is. The football player is known for his enthusiastic and eccentric lifestyle so this product endorsement is right up his alley. The Monster crew is happy to have Gronk on board as they feel that he is a good fit for their company strategy, and that he does an excellent job of representing the type of personality for the product. In addition to that, his elite status is something that the brand is happy to be associated with both on and off the field. The financial aspect of this deal was not disclosed, but it has been said by Gronkowski himself that he hasn’t spent any of his NFL contract money and lives simply off endorsements at the moment.
The New York native went to high school on the east coast of the United States, but was recruited out west to play for the University of Arizona for his college career. Gronkowski played for the Wildcats between the years of 2007 and 2009 before he decided to enter the 2010 NFL Draft. He was selected in the 2nd round as the 42nd overall pick by the New England Patriots and has been playing with the team ever since. The three-time Pro Bowl winner has had a great start to his professional football career as he has already surpassed and broken several league and team records.
Be sure to be on the lookout out for Gronkowski in future Monster Energy ads and endorsements, and there is no doubt that his spirited personality is going to make both himself and the brand stick out wherever he promotes it.

After that he also did some brief playing for the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings before doing his last professional football season with the Kansas City Chiefs in 2000.

Olympic snowboard gold medalist Kaitlyn Farrington visited with teenagers at Wood River High School in Hailey, Idaho on November 18th to talk to them about protecting the environment. She told the students that once she got into snowboarding and did it all the time is when she realized how important it is to work towards also keeping our planet clean and healthy so that people can continue to do outdoors sports on a regular basis. In addition to that, she noted that spending more time in the mountains gave her a higher sense of appreciation for Mother Nature and that people often take wildlife and rural lands for granted. Along with Farrington, the Wood River Land Trust and organization Protect Our Winter showed up to support the athlete’s efforts of raising awareness for protecting our natural land and resources. Protect Our Winter, also known as POW, told the students that they offer grants to the youngster who start up programs that benefit sustainability.
The snowboarder is also a native of Hailey and she grew up on a ranch nearby where she got lots of time outside. By the time Farrington reached high school she was already a competitive snowboarder, and since she was so dedicated to her sport her parents ended up selling their property to support her. She is the first woman to ever perform a backside 900 and has an ability to go about nine feet in the air with the use of a half pipe. Farrington won her first gold medal in the 2010 X Games Europe and also won the gold medal at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
Farrington visited her old stomping grounds of Hailey, Idaho earlier this month to talk to students about keeping our planet as healthy as we can so that future generations may benefit from it the same way we do now.

In addition to that, they remarked at how much prize money is given away these days for some of the tournaments and should a player test positive for anything, it should all have to be returned including the trophy. Murray also mentioned that even more than drug testing, transparency of the issue is what is most important. All three athletes gave some great points and were listened to by the audience members.
Roger Federer is a native of Switzerland and has been playing tennis professionally since 1998. So far his total prize money earnings add up to almost $100 million dollars in his lifetime.
