Friday is a big day in Ohio. It’s the first Friday of the High School Football season, it’s the return of JJ’s statewide Friday Night Scoreboard and it’s the unveiling of the New JJHuddle.com. Kickoff is coming in more ways than one this Labor Day weekend.
We announced last week that we were releasing a new JJHuddle.com website and a timetable has been set. This Friday – from 3:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. – we will make our new site accessible to the masses. The new JJHuddle Statewide Scores Page will become the home page for seven hours. You’ll be able to explore other pages from there (click on the logo).
The catch? The site is still under development so not all the features/links/buttons/etc. will be live/directed to the correct destination. And not all the content on the current site has been carried over. Don’t get frustrated. Just enjoy and explore. Have fun with something new.
What do you have to look forward to?
Make sure you check out…
The pages – one designated for each high school in Ohio – feature Real-Time Scoreboards, RSS feeds from local and regional media and Twitter feeds from district-specific sources. They also feature JJHuddle site-wide school-specific forum threads and news content. It’s a 24-hour refreshing news source for your school district. And it’s mobile-friendly.
(Media: If you have RSS feeds that are not currently connected, email me directly and let me know what they are – both local news and local sports. Please include a list of HS’s you cover).
(JJH Community/Schools: If there is a Twitter feed for a specific District that we need to include, please email me with the HS and Feed. Looking for sports, clubs, organizations, associations, etc.).
*Responsive Design: Mobile-Friendliness
The new JJHuddle.com site will format to whatever medium it’s being viewed on: desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile. Try it. No matter where you view the new site, it’s extremely easy to navigate, engage and read. Friday Night Score Updates have never been so easy…And we believe you’ll be shocked when you log onto JJHuddle.com at the games Friday Night via your mobile. Try it. Seriously. Revolutionary.
*Friday Night Scoreboard
In partnership with the OIAAA (Ohio Interscholastic Athletic Administrator’s Association) and OASSA (Ohio Association of Secondary School Administrators), we’re pleased to bring you our fourth annual Friday Night Statewide Ohio HS Football Scoreboard. Ohio’s original and most complete statewide real-time scoreboard will feature quarterly updated scores from Friday’s High School Football Games. Search scores by conference or alphabetically. No one has more scores or better info.

The JJHuddle Fourms will be unavailable for 24 hours. Articles and other site content will be available, BUT…the forums will be unavailable. Why? The New JJHuddle Forums are coming. When Tuesday rolls around, the New JJHuddle Forums will Launch!
It’s been a long time coming. JJHuddle’s roots are in forums. Now we have the most advanced forum software. And it’s almost here.
No matter “what” or “where” you like to talk, JJHuddle is Your HOME. And next week you’ll see why…
