New York, NY (March 24, 2011) – RumbaTime watches announced today its endorsement partnership with Ned Crotty, former member of the NCAA National Champion Duke Blue Devils, winner of the 2010 Tewaaraton Trophy. Ned, a longtime fan of RumbaTime, will help in a variety of RumbaTime marketing initiatives and assist in the growth and development of new collection launches. “Lacrosse is starting to receive the recognition it deserves as an entertaining & intense sport, and there’s no better person and player to push it forward than Ned Crotty,” said Drew Deters, co-founder of RumbaTime. “We are thrilled to have him wearing our watches on and off the field.”

Ned Crotty was the first overall pick during the 2010 Major League Lacrosse (MLL) draft when he went to the Chicago Machine. That year he was awarded the MLL’s Rookie of the Year award, as voted by the league’s coaches. Crotty also represented the United States team in the 2010 Federation of International Lacrosse (FIL) World Lacrosse Championships, where as the youngest player on the team, he scored the go-ahead goal in the championship game against Canada. Ned was the only college player to earn such an honor. A couple months later, Crotty was the first American drafted in the sport’s indoor league, the National Lacrosse League (NLL), when he was picked up by the Colorado Mammoth.

“I couldn’t be more excited to work with a fresh brand that truly understands that lacrosse is not just a game but also a lifestyle,” said Crotty. “Unlike any other watch company, RumbaTime provides that perfect balance of great style and utility for lacrosse players.”

Catering to the sports buff, RumbaTime’s collection of silicone watches are ultra lightweight, waterresistant and extremely durable. Lacrosse players and athletes of all sorts can find use in these watches because they don’t add bulk to your wrist and won’t cause a concern of damage. Through this partnership, RumbaTime and Ned Crotty hope to encourage those maintaining an active lifestyle by spreading RumbaTime’s message: Go Loud. Go Simple. Do What You Do & Dare People To Watch.
