Ascent Announces Athlete Partnership with Christian McCaffrey

DENVER, April 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ascent, a sports nutrition company committed to providing clean and pure performance products to athletes, is now the Official Performance Nutrition Partner of Christian McCaffrey. Starting today, Ascent will support McCaffrey as he heads into his third professional season.

Christian McCaffrey is a unique running back who is equally effective running between the tackles as he is running routes and catching passes. After three seasons playing college football, in which McCaffrey broke the NCAA record for the most all-purpose yards in a single-season, McCaffrey was selected eighth overall pick in the 2017 Professional Football Draft. Since starting his professional career, McCaffrey has quickly become one of the league's top all-purpose running backs. He finished 2018 with a combined total of 1,965 all-purpose yards and holds the single-season record for most receptions by a running back with 107 receptions.

"I have learned throughout my first two years of my professional career how important it is to properly recover," says Christian McCaffrey. "Everything I do off the field has an on-the-field purpose, and I notice a tangible and positive difference in how I feel post workout when I am using Ascent's products.  Their commitment to using zero artificial ingredients and their years of experience making clean protein allows me to trust that Ascent's protein products are supporting me in continuing to do what I love."
