After nearly a decade-long partnership with C2C Schools, the Florida High School Athletic Association has a new partner for carrying schedules, scores and statistics. The FHSAA and MaxPreps.com announced a five-year agreement Wednesday to have the site serve as the FHSAA’s official publishing platform.
“For the past 15 years, MaxPreps has been known as the leader in online high school sports,” FHSAA executive director Roger Dearing said in a statement. “We are thrilled to give our coaches, student-athletes and fans the ability to access real-time scores and statistics via their digital platforms.”
The agreement, which begins at the start of the 2017-18 school year, will require coaches to submit scores to MaxPreps after games to enable schools and the association to more accurately track schedules and standings. Coaches can also submit statistics for the FHSAA to use on its official leaderboards and record books.
We are thrilled to give our coaches, student-athletes and fans the ability to access real-time scores and statistics via their digital platforms.
Roger Dearing, FHSAA executive director
FHSAA.org, the organization’s official website, will also house MaxPreps content as part of the agreement. Live scores will be published on the FHSAA’s home page, and automated postseason brackets and box scores will be produced through MaxPreps.
“MaxPreps is honored to partner with the Florida High School Athletic Association to provide an efficient and streamlined process to highlight all member schools and Florida student-athletes,” MaxPreps president and founder Andy Beal said in a statement. “We look forward to working with the FHSAA to help further their goals and provide positive coverage of all member schools.”
MaxPreps, which is an affiliate of CBS Interactive, was founded in 2002 and has official partnerships with other states’ athletic associations, including North Carolina, South Carolina, Illinois, Arkansas and Texas.
