Los Angeles, CA, June 26, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Southern California-based Game Night Media, Inc., will be changing the face of high school athletics nationwide with an accessible design built for the players, coaches and the fans.
With All Stars™, high school athletes will be able to create a free athletic profile which they can market to various colleges and universities during their recruitment period. All Stars™ provides this crucial opportunity to athletes so they can easily build a digital recruitment packet for marketing their achievements to potential colleges and universities. This new tool will open doors for high school student athletes, university-level coaches and recruiters. Each profile package will include areas for pictures, videos and athletic and academic statistics. All player statistics (academic and athletic) are verified so that the college coach and recruiter have the correct information needed for the valuation.
“It’s a Match dot com for college recruiting,” adds Robert Henson, CEO/Founder for Game Night Media, Inc.
With the NCAA-compliant application, the athletes will be able to find the right athletic opportunity offered throughout universities and colleges. In addition, an analytics application will be available for the athlete to track their statistics in comparison to other athletes nationwide. In turn, the athletes can pinpoint their own strengths while the application will give them an overall view of their skills.
Besides player profiles, team profiles will be a communication tool for the coaches where they can update in real-time status messages to the team’s Locker Room. For example, if there is a location change, the coach will be able to make a status change and everyone associated with the team will be notified of the change.
College coaches and recruiters will be able to take advantage of these easy-to-use tools to review any athlete’s statistics. With a quantitative approach to filling voids in a team’s upcoming roster, a coach/recruiter can search the player database for matching candidates who can be followed through their season to track their progress. Coaches/recruiters can communicate directly with that player’s coach and/or coaches. This side of the application’s data output is based on the specialized analysis of statistical principles.
Another benefit is that every college and university will have a directory listing which will have all the information needed for the athlete to evaluate a school’s coaches, statistics, scholarships, academics and more. Also included will be a high school directory — a comprehensive list of every high school with information regarding coaches, teams, statistics and current rosters. In addition, there will be a directory of club teams, sport camps, private instructors and calendar of events for upcoming tournaments.
Prep athletics is very competitive and the same marketing efforts for college athletics can be applied to secure a roster position with a club team. With that in mind, another valuable aspect is a component to the site to hone an athlete’s talent. With the All Stars™ “Find a Coach” module, an athlete can benefit from hiring private instruction, whereas the private instructor benefits as well by creating a profile to promote his or her services.
Besides the game-changing All Stars program, Game Night Media, Inc., will also bring ground-breaking high school sports news to the table.
With weekly features, “Where Are They Now” and “Recruitment News” will follow a past athlete’s career and recruitment news relevant to the current All Star athlete, respectively.
Also in the media segment of Game Night will be three well-known sports journalists lending their expertise to Game Night’s media segment as the site’s featured columnists.
• Joe Santoro — A nationally known, award-winning, 30-year sports reporter from Gannett Media, Santoro is set to continue his “Friday Fodder” column.
• Aaron Retherford — A veteran Game Night sports reporter, Retherford will grace the Web site with his weekly column covering college and university recruitment.
Additionally, a top-notch Game Night advisory staff made up of former No. 1 draft picks, seasoned high school and college coaches, talented college administrators, and professional athletes including U.S. Olympians is set to contribute its considerable expertise.
With more than 21 million high school athletes in the country, Game Night Media, Inc., has the potential to impact both the lives of millions of young athletes and the recruitment difficulties of colleges and universities.
