FirstString is an online community for high school athletes and coaches, giving them a place to interact with each other. The service lets them share photos, videos, rank teams and stay updated on high school sports. Coaches on the other hand use the service to share information with users and keep track of players’ activity using the online service. Its founder and President, Jonathan Eppers stated:
FirstString has devoted a great amount of time and energy in simulating the competitive dynamics of high school athletics to the Web. FirstString is built to deliver engaging and relevant content that is happening on the field and inside the school district. Our team is very excited to deliver such an exclusive community that touches high school athletics in a local way, and will continue building features that enhance the on-field experience.
