Walter Camp is recognized as the "Father of American Football" and one of the giants of football in the US.
It was Camp who developed the game as it is played today. The game evolved from rugby as it was played in England to what we now recognized a football in the US.
Camp is credited with the play from scrimmage, the numerical assessment of goals and tries, the restriction of play to eleven men per side, set plays, and strategy features which have led to the development of the fast, interesting, and organized game which we enjoy so much today.
