Japanese players tread new ground at Under Armour combine
Under Armour Inc. is known for its innovative sports apparel and accessories.
Over the past several years Under Armour has branched out into sponsoring several college football teams such as Auburn and Maryland as well as many top athletes like Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.
The Baltimore-based company also sponsors the Under Armour All-America Game and Under Armour Underclassmen Combine that GatorCountry.com attends annually. Both events draw elite high school football players from across the nation and provide a venue for them to showcase their talents to the world before moving to the collegiate level.
While there are several other All-American games in the country, Under Armour's game differs as it also brings in former NFL players to coach the game.
This past year, Steve Mariucci and Herm Edwards were the coaches, and former players like Deion Sanders and Lavar Arrington were out at practices helping.
Now, Under Armour is going international to reach audiences outside of the United States.
