A new social media platform will help athletes share their achievements. Named ‘TropheCase,’ the founder and CEO Hunter Moffatt is a Colonie native.
“At one point in my life I was throwing in the 90s as a pitcher,” said Moffatt.
Although his days on the baseball diamond are over, Moffatt’s pitching career continues as an entrepreneur.
Moffatt, 30, leads a team of three behind the online sports networking platform. The startup is an affiliate of the New York BizLab in Schenectady.
“We often compare it to LinkedIn,” said Moffatt.
TropheCase will be available for Apple and android phones sometime in November, allowing users to create a personal profile with photos, videos and statistics.
He hopes the service will help high-school athletes send digital resumes to college recruiters.
Moffatt played baseball and football at UAlbany before transferring and continuing his athletic career at Schenectady County Community College and Bridgeport University in Connecticut.
“We really see this as leveling the playing field, giving everyone the opportunity for exposure,” said Moffatt.
Moffat wishes something like this was available during his playing days to increase his exposure.
“To be seen by a scout in California or an agent, I definitely see there would’ve been more opportunities than what I had,” Moffatt said.
Locked in to his latest pursuit, this former pitcher aims to provide athletes exposure in a social world.
“We’re giving this to them as a free platform to be able to really create their profile and for optimal success,” said Moffatt.
