NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) -  STACK Media, the leading producer and distributor of sports training, performance and lifestyle content for active sports participants, has launched the anticipated video channel all about Ndamukong Suh, one of the prospective #1 picks for the 2010 NFL Draft, set to begin April 22nd at Radio City Music Hall.

Ndamukong Rising gives an intimate look into the 6'4", 305-pound football phenom's experience at the Michael Johnson Performance Center in McKinney, Texas, where he spent five weeks attacking his NFL Combine and Pro Day prep under the tutelage of the facility's two resident experts, Director of Performance Lance Walker and Olympic Gold medal sprinter, Michael Johnson.

The sixth installment, "Showtime," takes place at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis and captures Ndamukong's reaction post-testing and his anticipation of Pro Day. STACK has also just launched the seventh episode, "Back On Campus," in which Ndamukong reflects on his memories of the 2008 Big 12 Championship game and takes STACK on a tour of the places he spent the most time during his record-breaking years as a Cornhusker.
