VILLANOVA BASKETBALL STAR TO SCORE MAJOR POINTS WITH SECOND ANNUAL iBALL PRO COMBINE

NATION’S ELITE FREE AGENT PLAYERS TO COMPETE IN FRONT OF NBA, WNBA & FIBA SCOUTS

POTTSTOWN, PA, April 27, 2016 — /EPR SPORTS NEWS/ — In the midst of “Nova Nation” frenzy, former Villanova Basketball Star Howard Brown (1995-1999) is returning to his hometown of Pottstown, PA with his full service player management, marketing and consulting International Ball Players United, LLP (iBall United) for the Second Annual iBall Pro Combine.

This innovative two-day event, which will be held June 25 and 26 from 9 AM-8 PM ET at Pottstown Senior High School (750 N. Washington St., Pottstown, PA 19464) will feature some of the nation’s top free agents as they compete in front of NBA, WNBA and FIBA scouts for the consideration of contracts at the U.S. and international professional basketball level.

iBall United is a full service player management, marketing and consulting firm focused on building professional careers. The company decided to create the iBall Pro Combine for athletes as an effective yet highly efficient tool for capturing the attention of NBA, WNBA and FIBA scouts in one controlled setting.

Howard, who was a successful player at Villanova and was even one of just a few players to break the 1,000 point mark, faced an uncertain future after graduation. That’s when he pursued a career overseas and became one of the most valuable players internationally. After 13 years playing abroad and winning two championships, two scoring titles and remains one the top 10 scorers in LEB Gold history, he decided to retire and start iBall United.

“It’s an honor and privilege to work with the young men and women who have entrusted us with the opportunity to launch, catapult, and sustain the path to growth in their careers,” said Brown. “I know what it’s like to be confident in your talent but need someone to give you a chance to show what you can do and prove yourself to the key decision-makers that can potentially offer you a contract.”

The iBall United Pro Combine

From action-packed tournament-style games and world-class drills, to intensive speed and athletic tests, iBall Pro Combine demonstrates what it takes to play at the professional level. The event is open to both male and female players. However they must be officially “invited” to attend after filling out an application online at www.iballunited.net and meeting the necessary requirements. Data for all registered players is shared internationally before, during, and after iBall Pro Combine to inform scouts on key metrics associated with professional evaluation.

These include:

▪ Athleticism.

▪ Reading Plays And Decision-Making.

▪ Levels of Contribution to A Winning Team.

▪ Attitude.

To date, several local players have been confirmed, including: Deva’nar Workman – Duquense (Reading, PA) who was a WNBA Top 50 Draftboard Candidate, Ciara Andrews – St Joseph’s, and Devontae Andrews – Temple.

Additionally, marquee players including: Tyler Deihl – ABA Rookie of the Year Finalist, Marcus Cousin – Former NBA Player and Overseas Star and Alexander Morillo – International All Star are also confirmed.

The iBall United Pro Combine and The Community

In addition to the Pro Combine, Howard believes strongly in giving back to his hometown of Pottstown, which is why the event also has a strong focus on involving the community. The iBall Healthy Families Initiative was launched in 2015 to promote health, wellness, and unity of area families and the community.

At the 2015 iBall Pro Combine, 20 businesses participated to help IBall United award more than $1,000 to local charities and 100 youth participating in the Healthy Families Basketball Clinic (HFBC). And the 16 Healthy Families initiative is already expected to more than double the gifts to the community.

The 2016 iBall Pro combine will also feature the HFBC and a new group of Pro Prospects from across the country will volunteer once again in the drills with kids and their families.

New this year, iBall will host the Inaugural United Communities Knockout Tournament. The competition is scheduled for Saturday, June 11 at Spruce Street Park, Spruce and Gay Street

4M FUNCTION, LLC Announces the Launch of the Multi-Functional SURF-O-MAT (TM) Surf Pack

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA, April 4, 2016 — /EPR NETWORK/ — 4M FUNCTION, LLC is excited to announce the launch of SURF-O-MAT TM. The patented design transforms the utility of a back pack, wetsuit change mat, beach towel, surfboard sling carry bag, and beach tent shade umbrella into a single multi-function product. It is simple to use, easy to clean and built to perform. The official launch date for the SURF-O-MAT is April 1, 2016.

Surf-O-Mat_Logo_RGB

4M FUNCTION, LLC believes the SURF-O-MAT is built for serious surf adventures or quick surf sessions. The four main components of the design combine form and function that no other surf specific product deliver in a single product.

Surf-O-Mat

BEACH CHANGE MAT
Surf-O-Mat beach mat round shape has more surface area than a traditional beach towel for sitting or sunbathing at the beach. It uses a cushy waterproof EVA foam surface for that won’t collect sand and dries instantly. Multiple pockets provide a discreet way to stash sunglasses, wallet, cell phone, and surf wax while in the water. Standing on Surf-O-Mat makes changing into a wetsuit on a sandy beach, rocky trail, or asphalt parking lot clean and comfortable. After a surf session, pack away a soggy wetsuit to keep the car dry. Cleaning Surf-O-Mat is easy, just hose off and hang dry.

BACKPACK BAG
Surf-O-Mat backpack bag provides a flexible method for transporting gear to the beach including wetsuit, hats, sandals, swim fins, drink bottles, radios, etc. Surf-O-Mat’s fold pattern also expands to accommodate larger items that wouldn’t normally fit in a traditional backpack. A functional shoulder strap allows for personalization. Convert from messenger bag style to backpack harness or quick carry handle simply by changing the strap’s attachment points.

SURFBOARD CARRY SLING
Surf-O-Mat surfboard sling provides a versatile way to carry surfboards. A comfortable shoulder strap makes it easy to carry the board to the beach, while the EVA foam surface protects from dings while in transit. Surf-O-Mat’s open ended design adapts to fit all board sizes including short boards, longboards, fishes, eggs, body boards, kite boards, SUP boards and paddles. Surf-O-Mat could also help carry firewood, food coolers, beach chairs, oversized gear or other hard to haul items.

SHADE SHELTER BEACH TENT
Surf-O-Mat shade shelter provides a new way to deflect sun or rain. Surf-O-Mat’s materials are opaque, virtually eliminating harmful UV rays while its wing pocket design allows for easy adjustment to any sun angle. Lightweight tent poles deliver quick set-up and more stability than traditional beach umbrellas in windy conditions and waterproof construction allows for use in rain. Surf-O-Mat’s grommets and clips can be used in creative configurations to tie onto trees, truck beds, picnic tables, bicycles and more when shelter is needed.

4M FUNCTION, LLC is pleased to announce the launch of SURF-O-MAT.COM, an commerce web site supporting the sales, marketing and distribution of 4M FUNCTION, LLC products. The official launch date SURF-O-MAT.COM is April 1, 2016
