I think the maxpreps website is a great help for schools and makes it fun for the athletes to assess their statistical progress.
As much as they may want to however, it is difficult for players to use the data to compare their statistical performance to other players-when some schools selectively enter and leave out player performance data.
At its core, the maxpreps data is obviously subject to the "honor system". But when schools that enter detailed statistical data on many games but fail to enter poor performances in a single game it can really skew stats and makes a joke of the data for that school.
Maybe schools should enter all performance data or no data...
My 2 cents.
