  3. FOOTBALL Next Back The game of Football began in the United States in 1869. The first two teams that ever played the game were Rutgers and Princeton Universities. Many changes have been made to the game of football since the very first game, however, the basic principle is the same. VS Menu

  4. FOOTBALL Back Next Football got its first set of rules in 1873 when representatives from Colombia, Rutgers, Princeton, and Yale Universities met to form the Intercollegiate Football Association. The IFA created the first set of rules for football, including the beginning of downs and the number of players on the field. Menu

  5. FOOTBALL Back Next The game of football has changed drastically over the years. Today, football is changing to keep the players safe. Football has always been a rough and brutal sport, but with the development of new technology, the game is getting safer. Football is one of the most popular sports in the country, and is my favorite sport to watch. Menu

  6. VOLLEYBALL Back Next My personal favorite sport to play is VOLLEYBALL! The game of volleyball was created in 1895 by William Morgan that wanted to create a sport with less physical contact. In 1896, the first volleyball game was played at Springfield College. Menu

  7. VOLLEYBALL Back Next In 1928, the United States Volleyball Association was formed. The USVBA created the first set of rules for the game of volleyball. Not only is volleyball played on a court, but it can also be played on the beach. Sand volleyball is my families favorite past-time. The first sand volleyball game was played in 1930 on the beach. Menu

  8. BASEBALL Back Next The game of baseball, also known as America’s Past-Time, is one of the most beloved sports in the world. My personal favorite baseball team is the Texas Rangers. Baseball has always been a popular sport in the United States, and will continue to be forever. This game began in the 1800’s and has only grown more popular throughout the years. Menu

  9. BASEBALL Back Next The Knickerbockers were a group of men that created the most evolutionary rules in all of baseball. These 20 rules were named the “Knickerbocker Rules” and helped put some order into this new game. These rules were made in 1845. These rules made baseball an unforgettable game. Menu

  10. BASEBALL Back Next My favorite team, and the best team in the league, has been to the World Series two of the last three years. I believe that they will be going again this year, and will WIN. The Texas Rangers have come a long way, just as the game of baseball has. It will be interesting to see how the game will progress in years to come. Menu

  11. BASKETBALL Back Next Basketball is one of the fastest and high energy games that is played in the United States today. Basketball was created in 1891 by James Naismith. The first ball ever used to play basketball was a soccer ball. The first professional league was created in 1898. Menu

  12. BASKETBALL Back Next One of the first big professional teams was the Celtics in 1915. The Celtics went on a winning streak, and made sports fans fall in love with the game of basketball. Basketball became even more popular with the introduction of players like larry bird, and Michael jordan. Menu

  13. HOCKEY Back Next The game of hockey was first created by Europeans that played in fields. However, the first ice hockey game was played in Canada, and was created by J.G. Creighton in 1875. The rules of hockey were implemented by people at McGill University. Menu

  14. HOCKEY Back Next My personal favorite hockey team is the Dallas Stars. The Dallas Stars have only won one Stanley Cup. This win took place in 1999. The Dallas Stars have struggled to make it in the playoffs over the past 5 years. Even though they haven’t always been the easiest team to follow, the Dallas Stars will always be my favorite hockey team. Menu
