Michael Vick, NFL® Comeback Player of the Year, Inks Deal to Endorse Core Synergy Performance Wristband

Lutte Licensing Group, LLC Adds Vick to Growing Roster of Athlete Endorsers

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) -  Continuing his off-the-field comeback, star quarterback Michael Vick signed an exclusive endorsement and licensing agreement with Lutte Licensing Group, LLC, maker and distributor of Core Synergy®, a patented decagon-shaped, titanium-infused, silicone wristband. Core Synergy is available in multiple colors and sizes at and will be available nationwide in major retailers later this month.

Additionally, Lutte plans to partner with Vick, the 2010 NFL® Comeback Player of the Year, to develop the Michael Vick Signature Series, which will be available later this spring. Lutte will donate a portion of the proceeds from the series to USA Football, the official youth football development partner of the NFL, its 32 teams and the NFL Players Association.

"We are extremely excited to add Michael Vick to our list of outstanding athlete endorsers," says Michael H. DiSabato, CEO of Lutte Licensing Group. "Michael epitomizes what the Core Synergy brand stands for. He's a pure, authentic athlete who dominates one of the most competitive sports in the world."

"I am excited to work with entrepreneur Michael DiSabato in developing the Core Synergy product. I love the design and feel of the band -- and as an athlete, I believe in everything it stands for," says Vick. "Through a partnership with USA Football, this product will also help in my effort to give back to the community and the sport I love."

The announcement of Vick's signing follows a busy year for Lutte Licensing Group and its Core Synergy™ brand. The company recently added high-profile Super Bowl athlete endorsers Maurkice Pouncey, the Pro Bowl Center of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and veteran linebacker, AJ Hawk, from the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. In late 2010, Lutte also signed model and UFC® Octagon girl, Arianny Celeste, to a sponsorship and licensing deal for the brand. Lutte Licensing Group, LLC also owns the exclusive licensing and manufacturing rights to prominent mixed martial arts brands, Cage Fighter® and CF Athletic®.

Lutte Licensing Group, LLC is a boutique manufacturing and licensing company started by Michael H. DiSabato. In addition to owning the Core Synergy® brand, Lutte Licensing Group owns exclusive licensing rights to prominent mixed martial arts brands Cage Fighter® and CF® Athletic. Cage Fighter® and CF® has been worn by some of the finest athletes in the sport including Chuck Liddell, BJ Penn, Urijah Faber, Forrest Griffin, Gray Maynard, Mo Lawal, Mark Coleman, Kevin Randleman, Josh Thompson, and Mike Swick. DiSabato also developed the first and only mixed martial arts lifestyle brand to be sold to Walmart stores in both the US and Canada.

Vick was named NFL® Comeback Player of the Year last month in Dallas during Super Bowl week following an outstanding 2010 season in which he threw for 21 touchdowns and rushed for another nine as the quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles. Vick also led the Eagles to the NFC East Division Championship and a playoff birth losing only to the eventual Super Bowl champions, Green Bay Packers, in a divisional playoff game. He is known for his tremendous athletic ability and tenacious desire to win.
