John is on the Implementation team with PrestoSports. Since a young child, John had an interest in sports and went on to become the co-captain of his high school golf team. During his senior year, John began writing sports articles for his school paper and served as a manager for both the basketball and baseball teams in which he did stats on the bench, while also being tasked with calling in results from events postgame to local media outlets. In essence, this began John’s career in sports information!

John graduated from Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Mass Communications (Public Relations emphasis), He then attended The University of Scranton where last spring, he earned his Masters in Business Administration.

Prior to working at PrestoSports, John worked for 14 years in sports information at five schools, using the Presto CMS for the last seven years of his career, so he is very knowledgeable! He started off on the Web Support team last February before transitioning to the Implementation team in October.

New Feature!


In effort to account for upgrades and local site overrides within the PrestoThemes platform, we have begun working through changes to our themes platform. Ultimately the benefits are projected to be tenfold and result in an optimized content structure, simpler site upgrades, and better overall site performance. Although no changes are required by site administrators, keep a look out for the new design soon!

Some additional core updates to PrestoWeb and CMS include:

  • Added autosave feature that will allow you to remain on content edit pages for an extended period of time before timing out without any activity.
  • Added shared roster headshots that will ultimately supplement an optimized leader component.
  • Added the ability to apply fractional point values to standings files, supporting half point overtime wins and losses.
  • Removed customized event restriction allowing administrators to identify a neutral site and venue location.
  • Added default sort by uniform number to player stats CSVs.
  • Safeties are now included in football season XMLs.
  • Added start date and end date to standings templates.
  • Fixed issue where Women’s lacrosse box score coaches view was still displaying faceoffs as opposed to draw controls – CMS, Web, Stats
