NFL stars to help Reebok touchdown $1mn for charity

Sep '05
Canton based Reebok International Ltd, throwing touchdown passes in the upcoming 2005 season will result in more than points on a scoreboard for top National Football League (NFL) stars. Reebok, the exclusive apparel provider of the NFL, announces the creation of the Rbk Touchdown Squad.

Comprised of six top Reebok quarterbacks, the squad will aim to earn $1 million for charity by breaking the current record for most touchdown passes thrown by six players in a season - 206.

Kicking off on the first Sunday of the regular season, each touchdown thrown will be tracked on http://www.reebok.com where fans can check out the Rbk Touchdown Squad's progress toward the ultimate goal of 207 touchdowns, beating the current 206 record. If the players meet the target of 207 touchdowns, $500,000 will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the remaining $500,000 will be split evenly and donated to each player's personal charities.

One of the top players on the Rbk Touchdown Squad, Peyton Manning broke the NFL record last season for touchdown passes (49) while capturing his second consecutive NFL MVP Award. The team also features one of last season's Super Bowl quarterbacks and a perennial Pro Bowler, Philadelphia Eagle Donovan McNabb. Last season, QBs Marc Bulger and Matt Hasselbeck lead two of the NFL's most feared passing attacks, throwing for more than 7,000 yards combined for the St. Louis Rams and the Seattle Seahawks respectively.

Rounding out the starting line-up for the squad are Leftwich and Pennington, who are primed for stellar seasons after fine tuning their team's passing games last year. In addition, the youngsters on the team, Eli Manning and Alex Smith also have an impressive touchdown pedigree and both were the top overall draft picks in the last two NFL drafts.
