The Origin of Football
Football was founded in the middle of the 19th century. It was based off of the game, rugby. Walter Camp, a Yale and Hopkins school graduate known as "the father of american football" developed the game by adding in most of the rules. In the late 19th century century, four college coaches, Eddie Cochems, Amos Alonzo Stagg, Knute Rockne, and Glenn "Pop" Warner, develop the "Forward Pass." The game became a huge hit in college, which eventually made it become a proffesional sport as well.
