18.Feb.2015 History of Football
On a slow day, I thought it a good time to share this piece on the history of football. It’s all interesting, but some finer points for me were the fact a Yale referee homered them into a big win in the 1800s (so we Beav fans are in good company, 100+ years of this), Native American’s key role in evolving football (and the first “underdog” in football history), Military origins of the game, Pop Warner invented the forward pass and trick plays, etc. It’s a good listen worth sharing.
Here are some photos from the Carlisle team.
