NEWTON, Mass. (February 12, 2019) –Your Call Football (YCF), the innovative, fan-controlled, live play-calling game, today announced that it has selected Prevent Biometrics® as its official impact monitor provider for its upcoming series. The Cleveland Clinic spinoff has developed the first accurate, real-time system for monitoring head impacts in contact sports.
“Prevent Biometrics stood out from other providers because of its unwavering commitment to quality and safe football,” said Julie Meringer, president of Your Call, Inc. “The safety of our players is paramount, and Prevent Biometrics’ advanced sensor technology makes it possible to detect and measure head impacts in real-time.”
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.
“Prevent Biometrics’ head impact monitoring technology brings accurate data to the subjective ways of evaluating head impacts, which we believe will allow teams and athletes to play the games we love more safely,” said Mike Shogren, vice president at Prevent Biometrics. “Aligning with an innovative new company like YCF is a great fit. We’re eager to have our system used in the upcoming series of games, and to learn more about the head impact exposure at this level of professional football.”
