SquadLocker, based in Warwick, RI, signed Dan Koppen to its team as enterprise brand advocate.

Koppen played in the NFL for nine seasons from 2003 to 2013 as an offensive lineman for the New England Patriots, which included five trips to the Super Bowl and two rings. He is helping to cultivate brand awareness for SquadLocker.

“SquadLocker is doing amazing things for sports teams and schools, particularly with the distractions of today as coaches and teachers are often side-tracked from their number one mission of teaching and mentoring students and youth athletes,” said Dan Koppen. “As SquadLocker continues to eliminate the heavy tasks associated with selecting, purchasing and delivering custom uniforms and gear so more time and attention can be focused on our youth, I look forward to working to get the good word out to help others.”

“Dan has already changed the dynamic of our meetings with schools and youth sports organizations, and coaches and mentors love speaking with him as he connects at a very personal level,” said Gary Goldberg, CEO of SquadLocker. “I can’t wait to see Dan and the rest of our team continue to develop content that is informative and entertaining. Lots of exciting ideas are percolating.”
