Tallahassee Community College launches redesign of athletics Web site with PrestoSports
 January 31, 2013

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (January 31, 2013) – In conjunction with the start of its spring athletics season, Tallahassee Community College, on Friday, January 25, officially launched a redesign of its athletics Web site, TCCeagles.com, on the PrestoSports network.

Tallahassee Community College’s athletic department has owned the rights to TCCeagles.com since 2002. Prior to Friday’s launch, however, the athletics site resided within the College’s public Web site.

Immediately upon arriving at the new TCCeagles.com, visitors can choose to read the latest athletic news, watch the most recent video entries to TCC Athletics’ YouTube channel, TCC Eagles HD, or catch up on the latest social media entries to Facebook and Twitter. A section of the home page is also devoted to a list of upcoming games, past results and current Panhandle Conference standings in the College’s four NJCAA-affiliated sports – men’s and women’s basketball, baseball and softball.

As did its predecessor, the new TCCeagles.com features traditional online information about each of Tallahassee Community College’s four teams – rosters, schedules, bios, statistics and press releases – but in a more interactive format.

Visitors to the site will see an emphasis on two key branding elements, featured prominently on every page - Tallahassee Community College’s royal blue and gold color scheme and the athletic department’s Eagle logo, originally designed in 2010 and updated in 2012 by Dallas-Fort Worth-based BeamTeam Design.

Adding to the visual appeal of the Web site are full color photos accompanying each press release, as well as photos of TCC student-athletes, past and present, in a watermark effect along each side of the page.

“I believe our Web site can become a valuable marketing tool for our athletic department,” said athletic director Rob Chaney. “Ultimately, I want TCCeagles.com to serve as a ‘front door’ to TCC Athletics – a way for us to engage our fans, as well as prospective student-athletes who may be considering Tallahassee Community College.”

The footer of each page is home of two additional fixed features – a score ticker and multimedia menu with one-click access to TCC Athletics’ social media sites, as well as links to a photo gallery, live video and subscription to RSS feeds.

The redesign also delivered a mobile platform that can be accessed from devices such as smartphones and tablets. iPhone users even have the opportunity to download an app to the home screen for quick and easy access to the new TCCeagles.com.

The new TCCeagles.com also directs visitors back to College’s public Web site, www.TCC.fl.edu.

The company develops technologies that facilitate the sharing of information on top of the PrestoSports Network, the digital mapping of teams' real-world connections.
