SCORE!’s unique interactive platform was produced by Sports Emmy winner John Brenkus, author of the “Perfection Point” and host of television’s popular Sports Science. SCORE! offers a first-of-its-kind fantasy sports experience with the introduction of custom technology that includes an interactive app and a slew of  Apple iPads enabling fans to sign with a virtual sports agent and later become a professional athlete with their favorite team or sport. At the end of the tour, fans can see for themselves through a “virtual locker” a synopsis of their career featuring their team uniform, press release, signing bonus and a personalized magazine cover highlighting their induction to their favorite hall of fame.

Las Vegas. “As the first African-American owners of a business on the Las Vegas Strip, my family is ecstatic to finally share with the public more than 200 stellar pieces that took more than 25 years to collect.”
