Unlike football in the rest of the world where it is played by foot, American Football is played by carrying the ball to the goal post by hand. If you have the power to stop the guy from doing so then you have to go out there and prove it. This is a pure muscle sport where the rules of the jungle apply and the strongest and the fittest survives. Also team work is crucial as each player in the team has a specific role and each of them is a vital cog in the machine.
Did you know that Rutgers and Princeton, two college teams, played the first ever game of American Football on November 6, 1869. The game is a hybrid of rugby and soccer and Walter Camp is known as the "Father of American Football". He is the one who took the responsibility of drawing up the rules of the game and the game has never looked back.
The game is in fact so popular, especially among the youth that it is played by approximately 1.1 million high school athletes and 70,000 college athletes annually. That’s huge isn’t it? Each school or college has their own star and they generally tend to grab all the attention from the young ladies and a successful juggernaut generally gets to play in major leagues like the National Football League (NFL) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). If you have the skill and power, fame is bound to follow you.
