National football foundation



Football trains boys in courage, competition and sportsmanship. It builds physical and moral fiber in an age of luxury and softness. Looked at from a broad perspective, it is a national force unique to America; teaching qualities of heart and spirit which complete the educational process of the whole man. Our mission is to promote and develop the power of amateur football in developing the qualities of leadership, sportsmanship, and competitive zeal and drive for academic excellence in America’s young people.

The spirit of competitive sports, however, should be in its proper place in the scheme of education. We want to keep football a game, not a business. If this goal is to be achieved, the “rules of the game” in America need a broad basis of public support. Building public support is the job of the more than one hundred chapters of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame across America.
