Team Sports 1


History

HISTORY

  • American football as we know it today originated in the late 19th century.

  • It was developed from two English sports: soccer and rugby.

  • Some colleges – namely Yale, Columbia, and Princeton – began to compete against one another in football following the soccer-based London Football Association rules in 1860.

  • In 1861, Harvard challenged Yale to a game played primarily using rugby rules but with modifications that started the move to a more liberal game of football.


History1

HISTORY

  • In 1876 the Intercollegiate Football Association was formed, and this organization developed many uniform rules of the game, including line of scrimmage, systems of downs, and the scoring system.

  • Touch and flag football grew out of the interest in American football.

  • Flag football eliminated the controversy inherent in touch football; which allowed for less contact and a clearly successful tackle.

  • The skill to grab or protect the flag also made flag football more interesting than touch football.
