Director of Scouting, PBR of NC

PBR continues to be a go-to source of information for college coaches and pro scouts. With advanced analytics and video on a players profile page, it allows them to get a feel for a prospects ability and track their progress. In an unprecedented year where college coaches were not allowed on the road to recruit PBR was a valuable resource for them to keep recruiting. There were over 10 million player profile views during 2020 on the PBR site. We will begin to highlight the the top ten most viewed player profiles in the state of North Carolina.
