Sqor.com sent out an official press release today announcing that former NFL quarterback Brett Favre will be providing exclusive NFL draft analysis on their website for this year’s NFL draft.
Below is a portion of the press release.
Nobody knows more about being an NFL star than Brett Favre. A three-time MVP and Super Bowl champion with the Green Bay Packers, Favre set records that may never be broken.
Now, in a sneak peak of Sqor (www.sqor.com), a new sports platform that connects fans to the athletes and sports they love, Favre will offer his exclusive insight into the next generation of NFL stars.
You’re invited to sign up now at www.sqor.com and check out Sqor on Thursday, April 25, as the greatest QB in NFL history evaluates the top of the NFL draft via video on the Sqor platform. Visit www.sqor.com or follow @sqor on Twitter for Favre’s candid analysis of the picks as they happen.
“Sqor is so simple…I was sold right away. This is a great way for athletes to grow their fan base,” said Favre. “Sqor cuts out the middle man and allows athletes unfiltered access to their fans.”
Sqor, from digital sports innovator Virtual Fan Network (www.virtualfannetwork.com), provides an aggregation experience combining the latest from social platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, sports news sites such as Sporting News and ESPN, and video, photo and original athlete produced content in a highly visual, personalized experience.
Sqor takes Brett Favre, and thousands of other athletes, off the field, court and rink and places them in the palm of your hand, providing the most engaging relationship platform in sports.
Historically, players needed to wait for reporters to ask them questions in order to share their opinions. Today, with the launch of the Sqor, athletes serve as their own personal beat reporters, providing unmatched access, insight and interaction with their most fervent fans. With the athlete becoming the publisher, Sqor reinvents the way athletes connect to their fans.
“Brett Favre is someone that understands innovation, audience and competing to win. Brett’s understanding of the needs of the professional athlete and the relationship between the athlete and the fan are what makes Brett’s involvement with Sqor so valuable,” said Sqor CEO Brian Wilhite.
The private beta of Sqor will be available to a small group of users on May 14, 2013. The Sqor app will be available for all iOS and Android devices.
