Phoenix-based Shamrock Farms and its line of protein-packed milk beverages, Rockin’ Protein, announced Tuesday Suns’ rookie star Deandre Ayton will join Team Rockin’ and be featured in the brand’s advertising, social media and public relations campaign.

The Suns drafted Ayton with the first pick in the 2018 NBA draft. He played the 2017-18 season at the University of Arizona, winning the Pac-12 Player of the Year as a freshman. Through 31 games with the Suns, Ayton is averaging 15.7 points and 10.2 rebounds per game.

As the latest addition to Team Rockin’, Ayton joins Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green and five-time world champion ski racer Ted Ligety, along with other sports stars and fitness advocates. Rockin’ Protein is also a sponsor of the U.S. Ski & Snowboard Team and hundreds of universities and high schools across the country.

Headquartered in Phoenix, Shamrock Farms has its own farm hosting a herd of more than 10,000 cows, and was founded in 1922 in Tucson.
