    Member: Collin Vataha (OC-II Team)

    Your Call Football (YCF) is bringing its play-calling competition one step closer to fans with the addition of Mr. Collin Vataha as Vice President of Football Operations. Mr. Vataha, a 15-year veteran of the sports-business industry, will develop the professional football teams that will compete on the field while fans call the plays live from their mobile devices in YCF’s innovative, social play-calling competition.

     
    Mr. Vataha has worked with YCF since its early stages as part of the company’s consulting relationship with Game Plan, a leading sports and entertainment consulting company. As YCF moves closer to bringing its play-calling competition to market, Mr. Vataha will determine training and game sites, staff the high-quality football teams from players to coaches to support personnel, and work with the entire football staff to implement YCF technology into the live football games.
     
    “Having Collin on board, with his experience as a football player and sports business consultant and his ability to think creatively outside the traditional sports conventions, will allow the company to deliver a quality, interactive fan experience that has never been done before,” said Julie Meringer, President of Your Call, Inc.
     
    Mr. Vataha started his career in the sports industry in 2003 with Game Plan, and he continues to provide services to current and prospective professional sports team owners, professional sports leagues, sports facilities and other investors and lenders in the sports industry. Mr. Vataha was a receiver and placekicker on the Williams College football team and his father, Randy, co-founder and President of Game Plan, played for the New England Patriots in the 1970s.  With Mr. Vataha on board, YCF will officially launch in 2018 with its revolutionary fan play-calling competitions during live, professional football games.
