What makes this site different from the rest? Our stats are verified, our stories are written by professional journalists and our photos are taken by professional photographers.
What else makes this site stand out? The sheer volume of data supports this destination site – local data. We have more than 14,000 players in our database, 337 schools, and 545 venues. Click on a schedule and a team and you can find directions, rosters, recent scores, recent game stats, photos and videos.
In addition to football, Varsity570 also covers wrestling, boys and girls basketball, baseball and softball. Over time, this Web site becomes the living history of your favorite high school sports team and its players. Each player profile includes a Web address that is that player's address for keeps. It is the college application addendum, the statistical history and the career map for that student-athlete.
But the core of the site is really the veracity of the information. We're not reliant upon our readers to tell us who won the game. That's our job. We will, however, be reaching out to you for photos and videos and eventually you'll be able to login and join communities of interest and extend that feverish spirit that encompasses high school sports.
So, have fun with the site. Let us know what you think and go to a high school sporting event tonight and cheer on your student-athletes!
