MAXPREPS.COM LAUNCHES HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS SCORING APP QWIXCORE
Announces initiative to form a nationwide network of QwiXcore scorekeepers to provide live scoring from every high school football game
Oct. 13, 2011: MaxPreps.com, the online high school sports leader and a CBSSports.com site, today announced the launch of QwiXcore, a web app dedicated to providing fans with live scoring updates from high school athletic events. Initially launching with football, the QwiXcore (pronounced Quick-Score) web app will collect and publish live scoring updates from games with an easy-to-use interface which can be operated on any Internet connected touch screen mobile device (e.g. iPhone, iPad, Android and Blackberry Torch) or notebook computers.
To input live scoring updates into the QwiXcore web app, MaxPreps.com is reaching out to high school sports enthusiasts across the nation to form an ad hoc network of "QwiXcorers". Invited scorekeepers will submit live scoring information and game updates through their mobile device which will then be published to each team's profile page on MaxPreps.com and on the MaxPreps mobile site. The MaxPreps QwiXcore mobile scoring network is designed to serve students, alumni, fans, and family both in the stands and at home who want to follow all the action from their favorite team, cross-town rival, other schools in their region, or the national scene.
Once fully formed, MaxPreps.com will become the first and only media property to provide live scoring updates for each of the approximately 16,500 high school football programs in the United States, making QwiXcore the largest ad hoc network of live sports data scorekeepers in the world.
"For years, fans have had access to live scoring updates from college and professional sports events," said Andy Beal, President of MaxPreps.com. "The concept of the Qwixcore network was created in response to pleas from our users who wanted similar coverage of high school football and as the digital leader in this space, we felt it our duty to serve a fan base every bit as passionate as any in the world. Only one QwiXcorer is invited to participate for each game, so people interested in joining MaxPreps' Qwixcore network need to contact MaxPreps.com as soon as possible."
For high school football games, QwiXcore will provide the following live updates during game play:
Updates for all scoring plays
End of quarter scores and final score
Red Zone Alerts
Two minute warning (4th quarter only)
