STACK Launches Ndamukong Rising, a Video Series Chronicling Top NFL Draft Prospect Ndamukong Suh's Journey to the NFL

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 8, 2010) -  STACK Media, the leading producer and distributor of sports training, performance and lifestyle content for active sports participants, has released the first episode of Ndamukong Rising, its new video series covering Ndamukong Suh's journey to the NFL. As the AP Player of the Year and first defensive tackle to become a Heisman Trophy finalist, Ndamukong made his mark at the University of Nebraska as one of the most dominant defensive players in college football history. Now, STACK Media is exclusively following Suh on his quest to impress NFL scouts and become the top pick in April's NFL Draft.

Ndamukong Rising, produced by STACK and published across STACK Media (, gives an intimate look into Ndamukong's experience at the Michael Johnson Performance Center, where he spent days and nights leading up to the audition of his life: the NFL Combine. "I'd seen some tape and saw just how athletic he is," says Michael Johnson, former Olympic gold medalist, in the first episode, now playing on "With the soccer background and the basketball background, he's developed some incredible athleticism that's helped him to be extremely powerful and explosive, not just upper body but lower body as well."

Over the next six weeks, STACK will release close to a dozen new episodes, covering Suh's path to improving speed, strength, agility, and lateral speed, reputedly his greatest weapon. Throughout the series, Suh talks about his high school years, his time at Nebraska, and his family's role in his motivation. STACK followed Suh to Indianapolis, getting an exclusive look at his physical and mental state upon arriving for the NFL Combine, as well as during preparations for and after testing.

The next episode features Suh's 40-Yard dash, aka "The Main Event" at the Combine. All videos can be viewed at
