Eric Crandall
A Northern California native, Eric has been playing paintball since 1991. His love for the game inspired him to become a young field owner, where he helped to develop and grow one of the best and most historical paintball fields in the world, Mare Island Paintball.  Mare Island Paintball was home to some of the game's most legendary teams and players including The Ironmen, Outta Control, KAPP, Lofty, Bob Long’s Ironmen and The Ironkids.
During his time at Mare Island Paintball, Eric introduced future superstar players Ryan Greenspan and Yosh Rau to Alex Fraige and Oliver Lang.  He helped to cultivate the relationship and experience of this elite group of young players from the Bay Area and helped them to grow through the ranks of tournament paintball-  he even brought them to their first tournament together.
Eric has been managing San Diego Dynasty since their inception in 2001 and is responsible for bringing organization, professionalism and many great sponsorship opportunities and relationships to the team.
Eric’s enthusiasm for the game of paintball along with his long time friendship with Bob Long sparked the beginning of Field One Paintball. Eric is not your typical company President, he is a paintball player at heart with his finger on the pulse of the paintball world.  He is approachable and eager to help people within the paintball arena to improve.  Eric is committed to providing top level equipment and innovation to the paintball community.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
Yosh Rau 

A true paintball professional.

Growing up in Northern California, Yosh began playing paintball in his backyard with school friends and neighborhood kids including Ryan Greenspan. 

At the age of 15, Yosh worked at Pacific Paintball (later known as KAPP) as a gun tech learning the workings of many of the legendary platforms like the Autococker and Automag. His background as a professional player, a paintball gun tech and archery tech and his experience in the construction field make Yosh a valuable part of the F1 team. Being a jack-of-all-trades, he can play, tech, build, sell and joke with the best of them.

Yosh has won more than 50 professional paintball tournaments, competed across the globe with numerous international teams and has taught thousands of players how to play the game.

A crucial part of team Dynasty, Yosh is a leader on and off the field. He is one of the most reliable players ever to play- specializing in low body situations especially when the odds are stacked against him.
