#Giants Running Back, Rashad Jennings, Signs Endorsement Deal With USANA Health Sciences
USANA Health Sciences is proud to announce its partnership with New York Giantsrunning back Rashad Jennings who will serve as its newest brand ambassador. Jennings joins more than 700 elite and world-class athletes who trust their health to @USANAinc.
The 29-year-old, six-foot-one running back began his professional career in 2009 with the Jacksonville Jaguars and played a season with the Raiders in 2013 as a free agent where he had career-high totals in rushing attempts (163), yards (733), touchdowns (six), and a career-best 36 receptions for 292 yards. In 2014, Jennings signed a 4-year contract with the Giants. On Sunday, September 21 he posted a career-best 176 yards and a touchdown on 34 carries as the Giants defeated the Texans 30-17, helping the Giants record its first win of the season (1-2).
“We are thrilled to announce Rashad as one of the newest members of Team USANA,” said USANA Chief Communications Officer Dan Macuga. “Not only is he an exceptional athlete, he is a testament of what it means to live a healthy life, and we look forward to watching him perform this season.”
Health and fitness have been vital to Jennings’ success on and off the field. “I was overweight as a kid and rode the bench in high school, but always dreamed of playing in the NFL,” said the six-year veteran. “I knew that I had to figure things out and commit to bettering myself physically to reach my goals and USANA has helped me stay on that path to become the player I am today.”
To date, Jennings holds 68 carries for 286 yards with the Giants and has scored two touchdowns. Jennings and the rest of the Giants next head to FedEx Field to face the Washington Redskins Thursday night. The game will air on NFL Network at 8:25 p.m. EDT.
