Walter Camp is considered the father of American football. During his time as a player and coach at Yale University from 1876 through 1892, he was part of a committee formed by Yale, Harvard, Princeton and Columbia to standardize rules of the game. Camp is credited with proposing rules that set American football on an evolutionary path from Rugby-style mob game to its modern form. Rules introduced by Camp included the establishment of a line of scrimmage; introduction of down-and-distance standards (requiring an offense to advance a number of yards over a set number of plays to retain possession of the ball); intiation of a play via a snap from the center; and the reduction of the number of players per side from 15 to 11.
