Yes, I've personally trained athletes in volleyball, soccer, tennis, basketball, baseball, football, rugby, sprints, throws, jumpers and distance runners.
Others have used the system in speed skating (the Chinese female speed skating team went from no gold medals to winning 10 gold and 10 silver/bronze medals and one World record--in one season--using our DL protocol).
It is also being used by short track bike racers.
I've had discussions with an NHL team regarding the implementation of the protocol.

Implementing the protocol in professional sports is problematical because of the minimalism of the program

I'm currently providing the strength training for an athlete at a major D1 school with permission of the coaching staff there.
