100th Professional Athlete Signs On with Like A Pro, Signaling End of Beta Testing Period
NY Jets Linebacker Josh Martin Marks Milestone Contract Signed
DENVER - Dec. 5, 2016 - PRLog -- Like A Pro, LLC (www.likeapro.com) announced this week that it has placed under contract its 100th professional athlete. Josh Martin, linebacker for the NY Jets, signed his agreement on December 1st, 2106. "What a great milestone to reach after so much work and focus," stated Founder and CEO Scott Schaible. "This is validating news for the team, our investors and everyone involved. We knew we would get to 100 before the end of the year, but the momentum we've seen and the contracts out with agents suggest we will far surpass this number prior to year's end," he continued.
Diversity of sports has always been a goal for Like A Pro. "We have racing drivers, NFL, rugby, NHL, sailing, soccer, squash, snow sports, surfing, lacrosse – quite an array," said Like A Pro President Jonathan Ressler. "In the coming weeks we will add fighters, gymnasts, swimmers, cricket and a host of extreme athletes. Our pipeline is pretty full right now with many athletes requesting to join us," Ressler continued. Just earlier this summer, the first athlete to join Like A Pro was NHL hockey player Ryan Kesler of the Anaheim Ducks and the USA Olympic Team.
