MaxPreps and the AHSAA will offer a publishing platform across desktop, tablet and mobile that will streamline the process of managing sports information from its member schools. The partnership enables all box score information published on MaxPreps.com to be automatically provided to the AHSAA for use in managing various initiatives.

"The state-of-the art services they can provide our schools when integrated with C2C Schools will make MaxPreps the go-to source for high school sports statistics as well as information regarding the NFHS Network. We are very excited for our member schools."
Beginning in the 2019-20 school year, the AHSAA will recommend that coaches use the MaxPreps platform to submit statistics after each game to accurately track team and student-athlete accomplishments and also to utilize the MaxPreps Teams app as a team communication tool.
"Alabama is one of the top states in the country for high school sports, and we are excited to partner with the AHSAA to share the accomplishments of its student-athletes nationally," said Andy Beal, president and founder of MaxPreps.
