Youngevity Announces Partnership with Drew Pearson

SAN DIEGO, May 08, 2013 -- Youngevity(R) Essential Life Sciences, a wholly owned subsidiary of AL International, Inc., announced today that sportscaster, businessman, and former superstar wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, Drew Pearson, has joined Youngevity(R) as a celebrity brand ambassador and member of its Athletic Advisory Board in its effort to continue promoting active, healthy lifestyles.

Drew Pearson began his professional NFL career in 1973 as a "walk-on" free agent with the Dallas Cowboys, where he rose to become one of the NFL's greatest all-time wide receivers. A three time All Pro, Drew Pearson played his entire professional football career for the Dallas Cowboys and helped the Cowboys to three Super Bowl appearances and a victory in Super Bowl XII in 1978. Pearson is recognized for many achievements highlighted by being named to the NFL 1970s All-Decade Team. His name is proudly displayed in Cowboys Stadium as a member of their prestigious Ring of Honor.

Pearson was known as "Mr. Clutch" for his numerous clutch catches in game-winning situations, especially the celebrated "Hail Mary" reception from Roger Staubach that sealed the victory in a 1975 playoff game, one of the most famous plays in Dallas Cowboys and NFL history. He caught the game-sealing touchdown in the 1973 playoff game against the Los Angeles Rams and the game-winning touchdown pass from reserve quarterback Clint Longley in the 1974 Thanksgiving game against the Washington Redskins. All three of those plays were named among the Top 75 plays in NFL history by NFL Films in 1994 and were included on a video/DVD by that name. In 2009, on the NFL Network show "NFL's Top 10," in the episode titled "Greatest Dallas Cowboys," he was named as one of the 10 Greatest Dallas Cowboys to ever play.

Since August of 2012, Pearson has been a co-host of The Drew Pearson Show, "More Than Just Sports," which is the pre and postgame show for the Dallas Cowboys season. On the show, Drew shares real life stories of his own personal experience with the Cowboys coupled with engaging guests and informative interviews. The show is featured on local Dallas FOX television affiliates and the audio portion of the show will be broadcasted over several different internet sports radio stations nationwide.

Drew Pearson stated, "I am very excited about joining the professional team at Youngevity as they continue to promote wellness and good health through their amazing array of products. I am fully engaged in their 90 for Life program and I have personally enjoyed the benefits from a number of their products. I became sold on the company through the use of their natural topical pain reliever called CM Cream. Obviously, after playing 11 years in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys, I walked away from the game with a few bumps and bruises. I have been dealing with an arthritic and joint pain condition that has accelerated at my current age. I am proud to endorse Youngevity's CM Cream which provided me almost immediate relief from the knee joint pain I had been experiencing for years. Trust REALLY works for me."

Steve Wallach, CEO of AL International, Inc. said, "We are extremely fortunate to have the original number 88 join our team. I am personally thrilled that Drew Pearson is having success with our products and I could not be prouder to have him be a part of our Athletic Advisory Board."
