The End Zone

Football is very unique to American culture…if baseball is our nation’s pastime then football is certainly our passion!

As in England, where the sport first developed, early football in the United States was relatively disorganized and quite violent. Different towns and schools played by their own sets of rules; they all involved two sides of a dozen or more men on foot rather than horseback—hence the sport’s name—attempting to drive the ball toward goals at opposite ends of the field. With the rising popularity of interscholastic competition during the second half of the nineteenth century, football gradually became the formalized sport that we all love today.
