What is Spring Football?

Spring Football is American style football1 played in stream beds fed by underground springs. This was a favorite activity of “native Americans” prior to the arrival of the Pilgrims. The Pilgrims initiated the playing of football in the Fall on flat fields as it is a much cooler season for the sport and the fields are better for running. Thus the Pilgrims converted the “native Americans” to Fall Football which is now just called Football. Spring Football, at this point, is just a side note in the history of football.

1 The real football where the ball is thrown through the air with the hands and carried in the arms, not that soccer thing played only by kicking a ball with the foot.
