First, a big thank you to the entire Gator family for your support of the 247Sports network. We are committed to this market and will continue to push for a great product. Thank you so much for your support and we are excited to share the following news with you.
Following is an email I just sent to the entire 247Sports network of publishers, reporters and staff. Thought it would be appropriate to post here as well:
Pubs and Staff,
-- Congratulations to Thomas Goldkamp and Luke Stampini of GatorBait.net (Florida) on signing long-term contracts with 247Sports. Goldkamp and Stampini have played an integral role in building GatorBait into one of the premier Florida team sites in a very competitive market.
Goldkamp and Stampini are two of our very best at understanding the importance of message board communities and driving traffic and subscriptions to the network. We are very pleased to award Thomas and Luke with long term deals and excited about their future in this industry and their continued contributions to 247Sports.
In addition to being total team-first players, following are just a few of their contributions to date:
-- Gatorbait.net grew unique visitors 51.48% and page views 207.17% in 2012 versus 2011.
-- Through the first two months of 2013, Gatorbait.net unique visitors and pages views are trending up a network-leading 91.69% and 152.32%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2012.
-- Gatorbait.net recently moved to #13 in the network in net active subscriptions and could challenge for the #7 spot by National Signing Day 2014.
Thanks for your attention.

Today is a good day for Florida fans......They have two of the best at Gatorbait.net for years to come!
Awesome, might have to go annual soon! This place has gone from worst to first in a matter of months, and it has everything to do with the two main "knuckleheads", TG & LS. You guys work hard, know your client, and provide incredibly in depth content and information from inside the program. If I only could subscribe to one site, this would be the one. It was 3rd not too long ago, for reference.
Winningest Program in College Football since 1990!
Every day is "Great to be a Florida Gator"!
Shoot, I thought he paid a discounted membership to be here!

Great news! Uh, about that smiley?
I'm gonna speak for Gibbons as deserving credit as an upaid supporter of the site. Not a coincidence that when he began posting a lot over here, the traffic picked up as many of us moved over from other sites. Not just him, plenty of his types that helped along with Luke's arrival around the same time, followed by TG. Great site.
+1 To all my dogs! Good job Luke and TG.
Listen, I'm ecstatic for my dawgs, Luke and TG. Good for them. Very deserving.
But since we got the Big Wigs up here, let's move on to more pressing issues. We've been tryna get this Gator Chomping smiley for about a solid three weeks.
Now I've got a few George Washington's in my pocket that can maybe convince y'all to expedite the process.
Very happy for Thomas and Luke. Beyond their knowledge and incredible work ethic and volume of product, they know how to make people feel welcome in this community and always have time to answer questions.
"You're not a good guy, you go somewhere else. We'll play you. We'll beat you."

Would it be possible to get a listing of the 12 net active subscriber sites above us so we know the competition?
Beatings will continue until morale improves
