Publish date:

The Indoor Football League's Salt Lake Screaming Eagles made history Thursday night. The Screaming Eagles are the first professional football team to give fans control over every major franchise decision -- including calling offensive plays live through their app.

And you, the fan, helped play a role. Fans called all the offensive plays in real time via the Screaming Eagles app (Download here on Android or iOS), but Salt Lake lost its season opener to the Nebraska Danger 78-47. 

Salt Lake's next game is at Colorado on Feb. 26. Your next chance to be a co-offensive coordinator is March 13, when Salt Lake returns home to face Spokane.
