American Football

American Football

    A Historical re-creation of the original book by Walter Camp, a sports writer and American football coach known as the Father of American Football.  With John Heisman, Amos Alonzo Stagg, Glenn Scobey Warner, Fielding H. Yost, and George Halas, Camp was one of the most accomplished persons in the history of American football.  His was the dominant voice on the various collegiate football rules committees that developed the American game. And this was from his time as a player at Yale until his death.  He is credited with innovations such as the snap-back from center, the system of downs, and the points system, as well the introduction of the long-standard offensive arrangement of players (a seven-man offensive line and a four-man backfield consisting of a quarterback, two halfbacks, and a fullback.)
