- Once you are logged-in to your Google Account, click 'Drive' on the top menu section.
- Click 'Create > Spreadsheet'.
- Now create a table for your players' stats. If you already have a spreadsheet saved elsewhere, simply copy/paste it into the Google spreadsheet.
- Double click 'Sheet1' at the bottom left of the spreadsheet to rename the sheet (e.g. Fall 2013).
Save and Publish
- On the Google spreadsheet, click "File > Publish to the Web"
