Walter Camp – The Father of American Football - The Football History Dude
This episode we fire up the DeLorean and head back to explore the life and career of The Father of American Football, Walter Camp. He was one of the most influential people in changing the game into what you and I now know as the National Football League. The episode takes you from his childhood through his time working with Teddy Roosevelt to save football from going extinct in America. He helped transform the game during his time at Yale, as well as beyond his college days. This individual’s contribution to the game of football is unlike many before or after him. So strap on your seatbelt, and let’s get ready to take this baby up to 88mph.
