ACE Brand "A" Game Challenge Grand Prize Winner - Ryan Riffle From Salem, OR

ACE Brand from 3M Company and Grammy-award winning recording artist and actor, LL COOL J, announce the winners of the ACE Brand “A” Game Challenge . The nationwide contest invited sports fans and aspiring athletes to submit “A” Game video entries showcasing their unique skills, tricks and one-of-a-kind winning moments in sports. This partnership benefited non-profit organization After-School All-Stars, the number one national provider of year-round, school-based after-school programs. The program also supported the launch of ACE Brand Sports Medicine Products, which helps keep athletes off the sidelines and in the action where they belong.

LL COOL J joined ACE Brand in naming three winners whose “A” Game videos stood out from the rest. Athletes of all types including swimmers, golfers, as well as soccer, basketball and football stars submitted entries and vied for the chance to win a selection of prizes from ACE Brand.

“The ACE Brand ' A' Game Challenge gave me a chance to see first-hand the passion and commitment demonstrated by these young athletes nationwide,” said LL COOL J. “Not only were the videos inspiring, but they help continue to spotlight the importance of access to team sports programs.”

Ryan Riffle from Salem, OR is awarded the grand prize for demonstrating his “A” Game with unique technical skills and inspiring athletic spirit in a video compilation showcasing precise shooting ability and extraordinary trick-shots. Riffle will receive a $10,000 prize. The two runner-up winners are Jocelyn Senecal from Pawtucket, RI whose video demonstrated a crowd-pleasing “over-the-house” basketball shot, and Samantha Mladjov from Oakland, CA who illustrated superb water polo skills in a series of goal-scoring moments. Senecal and Mladjov will each receive a $2,500 prize. All winners will receive an ACE Brand Sports Medicine Products Pack.

“The ACE Brand ' A' Game Challenge provided us with an inside look at the commitment, skill, creativity and effort that athletes and sports enthusiasts demonstrate across the country,” said Taylor Harper, marketing manager, ACE Brand Sports Medicine Products. “With our new ACE Brand Sports Medicine Products, we are committed to ensuring these athletes stay at the top of their ' A' Game – and through this contest we celebrate aspiring athletes everywhere and their achievements.”
