LOS ANGELES, Sep. 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NFL Hall of Fame, legendary wide receiver, Fred Biletnikoff, has joined the ever-growing team of celebrated athletes and entertainers as a part of the cardiovascular protection team of Signalife, Inc. (Amex: SGN) and Athletes for Life ("AFL"), using Signalife's Fidelity 100 and its related products and technologies. He has joined such superstars as Joe Theisman, Marshall Faulk, Tim Brown, Rocket Ismail, Jerry Rice, Dwight Clark, and Leonard Marshall in putting down their collective feet to put a stop to the late-stage, inaccurate-diagnosis-laden (diagnoses which is sometimes too little too late) assessment of heart and cardiovascular diseases.
The MVP of Super Bowl XI, Mr. Biletnikoff demonstrated on a world stage what passion and focus mean as he delivered an unprecedented performance in leading his team to an overwhelming victory in the Super Bowl.
In 1999, Mr. Biletnikoff was ranked number 94 on The Sporting News "list of the 100 Greatest Football Players." The Fred Biletnikoff Award, awarded annually to the best wide receiver in college football since 1994, was named in his honor.
Dr. Harmison, former Principal Deputy of the U.S. Department of Health
Services, commented: "Mr. Biletnikoff -- one of my personal heroes -- has
made the choice to make a difference in a disease-state that burdens
practically every family in America and costs the U.S. Health Care industry
about $400 billion per year in treating cardiovascular disease. Having
someone of his stature -- a true NFL legend -- and of his demographic, will
assist Signalife and AFL in addressing all of the different possible
disease states and treatment options in a wider array of circumstances. I
