With another high school sports season kicking off Thursday in Middle Georgia, we would like to take the opportunity to share an exciting new feature that will supplement our coverage this year.

The Telegraph is partnering with ScoreStream for real-time collection and reporting of high school results. On Friday nights, for example, you’ll find up-to-the-minute scores on macon.com from high school football games across The Telegraph’s coverage area.

The best part of this new system is that coaches, parents — and just plain fans — are invited to help report scores by using the ScoreStream mobile app (download information here). ScoreStream is a crowd-sourcing-based operation that, for instance, should allow us to greatly increase the number of football scores that we’re able to report. The ScoreStream app also allows users to upload photos and video clips from the games they’re watching.

We’ll all be getting to know ScoreStream better in the months to come. For now, bookmark us, share what you see, and return often to macon.com. Click HERE to read more about ScoreStream.
