Cliff Keen Athletic and Mossy Oak Join Forces

Ann Arbor, Michigan – Cliff Keen Athletic has entered into a marketing and licensed merchandising deal with Mossy Oak® and sponsored athlete, Men’s 65 KG Freestyle Wrestler, Brent Metcalf.


Included in this new deal is a special line of gear and apparel, the Brent Metcalf Series line featuring Mossy Oak® Breakup Country™ Camouflage.  Metcalf, an avid hunter and outdoorsman, is a member of Mossy Oak’s “Pro Staff Team.” Brent, along with Mossy Oak and Cliff Keen, conceived a line of wrestling gear, under the mantra of “Be The Hunter.”  This new line of wrestling gear consists of two Mossy Oak-themed sublimated singlets: “Alpha Bull” and “Alpha Buck.”  In addition, there is a Mossy Oak Headgear Wrap, Mossy Oak sublimated board short, and both long sleeve and short sleeve MXS® Loose Gear sublimated training tops.  

Tom Keen, President of Cliff Keen Athletic, said “Brent is a world class athlete and one of his passions is hunting.  The new Metcalf Series of Mossy Oak camo gear perfectly captures what Brent is all about. We believe it will be a hit among Metcalf, Iowa Wrestling, Hawkeye Wrestling Club, and USA Wrestling fans alike.”  Cliff Keen athlete Brent Metcalf added, “I saw an opportunity to bring the best camouflage in the hunting industry to the wrestling world. Naturally, I approached Cliff Keen because they make the best wrestling apparel in the world. I am super excited about this, because there is nothing like it in the wrestling market. I think wrestlers who are hunters or just fans of camouflage will really appreciate the quality and realism that Mossy Oak Camo has always been known for.”


Tim Anderson from Mossy Oak said, “Brent is a great wrestler and ambassador for the sport.  He is also an avid hunter and we are proud to have him as part of the Mossy Oak Pro Staff team.  We know there are many wrestling enthusiasts that are also hunters.  Mossy Oak is excited to be able to join forces with Cliff Keen and produce signature clothing that enables hunters to proudly promote the sports of wrestling and hunting at the same time.”
