Call the plays that Johnny Manziel runs by signing up for free to join the Zappers today
When Fan Controlled Football was started nearly 5 years ago giving fans the ability to call the shots, who would’ve thought they would call this one.
Well, the fans have spoken and here’s Johnny! Former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL first-round pick, Johnny Manziel, has signed to play with us in our inaugural season.
Manziel rose to football stardom with Texas A&M in 2012 as the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy. Manziel most recently spent time with the Memphis Express of the Alliance of American Football (AAF) in 2019 after being drafted 22nd overall by Cleveland in the 2014 NFL draft.
“We could not be more excited to have Johnny Manziel join the FCF,” said Sohrob Farudi, FCF Co-Founder and CEO. “To have one of the most talented and exciting players in the history of college football is a historic moment for the FCF, and for our fans who will have the opportunity to call the plays for Manziel.”
Now, bringing ‘Johnny Football’ out of retirement is no easy task, and Zappers Co-Owner and personal friend of Mr. Football, Bob Menery, has been vocal on social media regarding his support for the quarterback’s return to football, and has since placed the Zappers sole franchise tag on the QB.
The fans know Manziel will be up for grabs by any team come time for the first draft, but they’ve shared their thoughts from “That’s my quarterback” to “This is legendary,” across social media.
And from Johnny Football himself, “Football has always been a huge part of my life, and the opportunity to join the FCF was too good to pass up,” said Manziel. “FCF is doing something new and original in sports, a league that is truly all about the fans and letting them call all the shots. I can’t wait to get started – this is going to be fun.”
