The company is headquartered in Birmingham, Alabama, and its main objective is to allow high school student athletes from all sports and talent levels to increase their collegiate exposure and opportunities. allows the student athlete (along with coaches and parents) to build a profile containing their academic specs, athletic stats and contact info.
