NEWTON, Mass. (February 14, 2019) –Your Call Football (YCF), the innovative, fan-controlled, live play-calling game, today announced that it has selected Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute (JOI), a sports medicine provider delivering comprehensive care for muscles, bones and joints, as the official sports medicine provider for its upcoming series.
JOI will provide experienced Certified Athletic Trainers with extensive professional sports experience for all of YCF’s games and practices. Additionally, Dr. Kevin Kaplan, Dr. Steven Crenshaw and Dr. Michael Yorio, who are also Team Physician’s for the Jacksonville Jaguars, will serve as YCF’s physicians.
“Player safety is YCF’s first priority and JOI is one of the top sports medicine providers in Northeast Florida,” said Merril Hoge, YCF head coach and former NFL running back. “JOI’s Certified Athletic Trainers have a lot of experience working with professional athletes, so we know our players are in great hands under the quality care of JOI and the supervision of Dr. Kaplan.”
Your Call Football’s upcoming four-game series, which begins on Monday, February 25, will allow fans to control the action in a real, live game by determining the plays that will be run on the field. YCF features two teams, each coached by former Pittsburgh Steelers teammates Merril Hoge and Solomon Wilcots. Games will be played on four consecutive Monday nights at 8 p.m., and will take place at the Dream Finders Homes Flex Field at Daily’s Place, adjacent to TIAA Bank Field – home of the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Through its free app, fans vote on three coach-selected plays, then watch as the majority voted play is executed live on the field by YCF professional players. Fans accumulate points based on their play-calling skills and compete against each other for bragging right and more than $72,000 in cash prizes. New this year, fans will also have the opportunity to win $1 million if they call a perfect game by earning the maximum points on every play.
“JOI is very excited to be a part of the Your Call Football series in Jacksonville,” said Dr. Kaplan. “We know this season will be a big success and we look forward to providing the same high-quality medical care that we do for all of our professional, college and high school athletes.”
