Walter Camp is called the 'Father of American Football'. Click on the Walter Camp link on this page to read about him. Walter Camp is actually credited with inventing football. He was a former player & coach at Yale and developed the basic rules by combining soccer with rugby. Rinus Michel was the inventor/creator of total football or the use of all 11 men on each play. In the early stages of football if a play went left only the players on that side would participate. Though Camp developed the idea without Michel, football would not be what it is today. Answer walter camp is the true inventer of football
