"I am responsible for the entire evaluation of hundred of athletes... that’s on the field and off the field. Ultimately my recommendations come down to basic player characteristics. Today, an area that has become extremely important is understanding the athlete off the field. These types of insights can come from multiple online sources. For example, when not competing, what are the athletes interests outside of the game? It is also helpful to get glimpses into their online personality.
All of these elements are important to the entire evaluation of the athlete. Working with the Avrij team these past few months, I soon became aware that their application allows me more time to focus on the on-field evaluation and less time behind the computer searching through an impossible amount of information. This application changes how I approach an athlete’s online footprint."
