Madison, WI (PRWEB) July 17, 2008
One of the fantasy football industry's veteran content providers, Tony Holm, owner and founder of FantasySharks.com, has joined the team at Sideline Software, Inc. Mr. Holm created and continues on as publisher of FantasySharks.com, one of the top free fantasy football resources on the Internet.
Along with 40 contributors, FantasySharks.com creates and delivers proprietary fantasy sports content for the FantasySharks.com brand as well as a variety of media outlets. Mr. Holm has an extensive software development background having developed Hospital Information Systems for ten years, Electronic Design Automation software for seven years and Fantasy Football applications for six years.
Most notably, his "FantasySharks.com Lineup Coach", "FantasySharks.com Draft Coach" and "FantasySharks.com Player Pages" integrate the statistics and rules from MyFantasyLeague.com customer leagues with the content analysis of FantasySharks.com. Lineup Coach projects NFL player statistical output and is used by tens of thousands of fantasy owners on a weekly basis to assist in setting an optimal lineup. Draft Coach, also relied on by many, similarly uses player projection data along with a proprietary algorithm to provide guidance to an NFL player's worth and recommended draft position so that an optimal fantasy roster can be created.
Mike Hall, President of Sideline Software, Inc, mentioned, "With Tony's background in both programming and fantasy analysis, he was an obvious perfect-fit into our environment. We're thrilled he's joined our team and excited to be able to add even more industry-leading features to the MyFanasyLeague.com system."
Mr. Holm has recently completed a free public mock draft application for Sideline Software, Inc. and will be leading the development efforts for updating the company's web site as well as integrating fantasy football content into customer leagues with a number of trusted industry content providers.
When asked about his new role, he replied "Having worked with the team at Sideline Software over the years on a variety of projects, I'm excited to have the opportunity to deliver innovative solutions for issues that face the fantasy football community. I look forward to working with our industry partners to build up the MyFantasyLeague.com brand through the addition of fantasy player targeted content and continuing to drive user adoption of our product."
