Target audience - all college and pro sports fans for the sports listed above.
Site visitors will be able to search for athletes in two ways: 1) according to the school where they played. Once you go from the conference the school resides in >> school >> sport >> athlete, you can see many data points about that athlete (current pro team they play for, year drafted/turned pro, twitter handle, years they played for that school, and a few others).
Method #2 for searching for players will be a simple search function on the at or near the main/head banner. If a certain player did not play collegiately at the NCAA Division I level for the sports listed above, the search will turn up empty or merely indicate that that player did not play D1 in college
