Every Athlete's Home Page
Career profiles are the main landing page for each athlete. This page will display the most current sport season an athlete is participating in along with the other sports they play.

- Tags in any MaxPreps published article.
- Tags in any MaxPreps published photo galleries.
- Tags in any video published on MaxPreps.

How to Maximize the MaxPreps Platform
Making sure an athlete has all of the years an athlete participated in a sport is crucial. College scouts seeing a gap between years may lead them to believe they are not truly committed to their sport.
Having a photo, height, weight, positions, and class year are also important figures that college coaches use to help make decisions during the recruitment process.
Stats are THE data points college scouts are looking at the most on our site. If there is one thing we at MaxPreps would say is the most important information to have on our site, this is it.
Not only do stats have a good barometer for college coaches to work off of; your chances of an athlete being selected for a MaxPreps award increase ten-fold.
Having highlight videos and game film is also a great way to gain exposure for athlete's. These videos give a chance for scouts to learn an athlete's playstyle to see if they are compatible with the program.
Videos can be submitted on the Videos tab on an athlete's profile. MaxPreps and HUDL also are partnered to simplify this process.
Add measurements such as height, weight, wingspan as well as personal records for weight lifting and agility. Adding these measurements give college scouts a clearer vision of a prospective athlete to see if they are compatible with the program.
If a name is misspelled or something else you would like fixed, corrected or updated on a roster, please use the Rosters Correction Tool.
