CEO

ScrapSports was built by Niesha Butler, a professional basketball player/sports reporter turned tech entrepreneur.  The idea for ScrapSports was born when Niesha discovered a scrapbook on her own career her mother had created.  After seeing all the old news clips, she knew the time had come to bring this form of memory making into the digital age.

As a Georgia Tech student-athlete, Niesha consistently broke scoring records and won awards in both high school and college, leading to professional playing opportunities in the WNBA and FIBA Spain’s Premier Division. Her sports career ultimately paved the way for Niesha to transition to becoming a television and radio sports analyst for CBS Radio and TMZ and now ScrapSports.
