Objective

Create a compelling and accurate depiction of live NFL and college football games, utilizing real-time scoring data, in a responsive HTML5 app that integrates into the existing Fox Sports site.

  • Deliver the product in an accelerated time schedule utilizing a new data source that is still under development.
  • Sync to games with minimal lag compared to broadcast.
  • Recover smoothly from inaccurate data to keep users correctly informed as to stats, scores and game states.
  • Consult on design decisions and implementation.
  • Coordinate with 5 different teams all working on separate parts of the site.
