Theodore Roosevelt and Football

Theodore Roosevelt and Football

When Theodore Roosevelt was president of the United States the game of football was a popular college sport but a very brutal one!! In one year (1905) 19 college football players died playing the game and another 137 players were seriously injured. The president loved rough and tough activities and he really loved football; his son Teddy, Jr. was playing on the Harvard University team. But the president knew the game was way too rough.

It’s an entire island in the middle of the Potomac River.  It is 88 acres of wooded parkland dedicated totally to Teddy Roosevelt, as many people called him.
