Fifth Year of Signing Day Coverage

As a team, TheInsiders.com network is celebrating its fifth anniversary of National Signing Day coverage and is doing so in typical fashion – passionately, thoroughly and innovatively. Wouldn't you agree that Gamecock Insider has provided you with the best coverage, the finest message boards, and the most "insider" news during the entire recruiting season! ...

Great sports fans such as yourself have come to expect nothing less. After all, TheInsiders.com founder Jim Heckman invented the national college recruiting database with the help of Student Sports, the exclusive operator of the Nike Football Training Camps, in 1998. Heckman eventually parlayed that database, along with contributions from the top recruiting experts and scouts in the country, plus partnerships with FOX and Yahoo!, into the first complete national online sports network. And Russ Perry's GamecockSports.com was part of that network ... remember those days?

As you know, that network was plyed away from Jim and finally folded under the different leadership with the Global Internet Crash of 2000. It's domain name "Rivals" was eventually purchased by another, much smaller company. But the original Rivals team, led by Heckman, and including the original world-class engineering group, top executives, core recruiting group, top college team sites and all NFL team sites, as well as FOX and Yahoo ... are back as The Insiders and stronger than ever. So after going it alone as an independent for over a year why did Russ, who had turned his Gamecock Sports Dot Com into the wildly popular Gamecock Nation, decide to finally rejoin his old team of publishers and Jim Heckman? Russ would tell you it is because he really likes our CEO Jim Heckman and our CFO Glenn Nelson ... they are good people.

But we bet he also likes the fact that we are already operating on a cash-flow-positive basis - and you should too ... because now, TheInsiders.com team has covered its fifth National Signing Day with "Scout", our national prospect database that follows players from high school to the professional ranks and stores info and other exclusive Nike Camp and Elite 11 Quarterback Camp data. This network that you are a part of is the official provider of recruiting coverage to SportsIllustrated.com and syndicates recruiting and team news to Yahoo Sports as well!TheInsiders.com's online coverage is supplemented by glossy print magazines, including the National Recruiting Yearbook, which is included free with your annual online Total Access Pass subscriptions and memorializes the information fans such as youself have been following all year.
