'Player's Bracket' is a new app created by Fanstreme that allows fans to donate money to their favorite college athletes. While universities make a great deal of money from advertising, ticket sales and other events involving college athletes, the players themselves do not earn a dime. This app allows players to collect money from fans who want to financially support the college athletes.

Player's Bracket is an app that essentially functions as a sponsorship machine for college athletes. Fans simply choose their favorite player and select how much money they wish to donate. The donations are then held in a trust until after the player has graduated college. Alternatively, players can choose to have the money donated to a charity in their name.

The app ultimately serves as a way to combat the ongoing issue of how college athletes are compensated for their efforts.
