Frank Barone had an idea.
He was watching his sons, and his sons’ friends, compete on the football field and basketball court, and recognized there was a need for a new service.
Many student athletes play sports across the Garden State, and all over the country. Many of those athletes want to play at the next level, and there are plenty of coaches that need players. But it is often difficult for those college coaches to get out to see players, especially in season, and during these times of COVID-19.
So Barone started a new company, Go MVB, to help student-athletes match up with college coaches.
Here is a recent press release from the company, as the company expands:
Today, college coaching staffs are being augmented with internet and social media specialists charged with scouring these media sources to find anything and everything they can on high school athletes. Social media has become the darling of these scouts to identify athletes that may fit their respective rosters. Millions of dollars in college scholarships are riding on these efforts.
“It has become abundantly clear that today’s high school athletes not only have to be at the cutting edge of athletic training and performance, but must ALSO demonstrate an ability to properly promote themselves across the Internet and Social Media,” Frank Barone, co-founder, GoMVB, said.
GoMVB serves as a personal public relations firm to each and every prospect within its platform. Each prospect receives:
- High-end Personalized Social and Digital Promotion across All Social Media Platforms
- A Personalized Digital Profile
- Multiple Photo and Film Edits
- Press Releases
- Personalized Academic, Athletic and Skills Assessment
- College / Player Analysis
- College and Coach Communications Prep
In performing each one of these components of service, GoMVB is maximizing the high school athlete’s exposure WHILE building their social media following.
“We build a specific URL for each prospect that acts as a one-stop-shop to showcase everything and anything a college coach or recruiter will want to know about a player,” Barone said.
This tool acts as a major bullet in the holster of high school coaches and trainers who are speaking with their college counterparts on behalf of a respective player. Parents and the actual athletes who find themselves engaging with college coaches and recruiters have the same INDEPENDENT source to point to identify all the major characteristics of the student athlete, both athletically and academically.
“We don’t pretend or try to play the role of recruiter, and we don’t guarantee college placement, offers or scholarships: we leave that job to the high school/club coaches and recruiting professionals,” Barone said. “We are simply the athlete’s personal marketing firm, ensuring that the most poignant skill sets the athlete possesses are widely promoted across those channels that we know college coaches/recruiters are scouring.
GoMVB does not guarantee to a college coach or recruiter player performance. It showcases the athlete’s skills through profile descriptions, video clips, photos, and press releases. It is always the recruiting staff’s responsibility to properly vet the player.
“Bottom-line, we provide the visual and graphical content necessary for high school coaches, trainers, athletes and parents to maximize the athlete’s chance of using their respective sport to gain acceptance into a college or university,” Barone said. “That opportunity may not have existed without the sport for which they are playing. And if as a result of such promotion, the athlete receives a partial or full scholarship, then it is all the better.”
