Football :Did you know? 

  • Football (or American Football) originated from the sport of Rugby.
  • The first American football game was played on November 6, 1869 between the college teams Princeton and Rutgers.  The rules for this first game resembled a mix of both Rugby and Soccer.
  • In 1880 a Yale player, Walter Camp, started a series of rule changes that would eventually evolve into the football we know today.  Camp is known as  the "Father of American Football".
  • The first Super Bowl was played on January 15, 1967 between the Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs.  Green Bay won 35-10.
