EZ Grill Scores a Touchdown With Heisman Trophy Winner and NFL Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett

Legendary Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee and Former Dallas Cowboys Running Back, Tony Dorsett, Signs With EZ Grill Ready-to-Use Disposable Grill as Official Spokesperson for 2010 and Beyond

KIRKLAND, WA--(Marketwire - March 29, 2010) -  Legendary Tony Dorsett, Heisman Trophy winner, NFL Hall of Fame member and Super Bowl XII winner, has just signed a multi-year promotional deal with EZ Grill, a recyclable, ready-to-use disposable grill where he will be acting as an ambassador for the tailgater's tool at various industry events, signing autographs and meeting with fans.

"For many of my fans, there's nothing better than the smell of a charcoal grill and the taste of juicy hamburgers while tailgating at the stadium," said Dorsett. "The EZ Grill allows everyone to enjoy this great American past-time without the hassle."

A former American football running back in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos, Dorsett started his college career at the University of Pittsburgh, where he helped lead the team to a national title in 1976 and landed himself a Heisman Trophy, among other distinguished awards.

"Tony Dorsett is an American legend and we are thrilled to have him on the EZ Grill team," said Phillip Swan, CEO of EZ Grill. "The respect and admiration he has earned from his loyal fans over the years makes him a huge influence in the football and tailgating arena, which is why this partnership couldn't be more perfect."

In 1982 during a Monday night game against the Minnesota Vikings, Dorsett set a record that may some day be tied but will never be broken -- a 99-yard touchdown run. In 1994, Dorsett was elected to both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the College Football Hall of Fame. Another fun fact? He was the first player to win the college football championship one year and then win the Super Bowl the next.

The EZ Grill, available in regular size (1.81 lbs) and party size (3.31 lbs) for $4.99 and $9.99 ($9.88 at Wal-Mart), respectively, lights with just one match and consistently cooks for up to 1 ½ hours after ignition to ensure superior grilling quality and flavor.

The EZ Grill can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Safeway and other retailers nationwide and at www.ezgrill.com.
