Is Football Worth the Risk? – Strength Magazine – October, 1923

“If my son didn’t play football-well, I don’t think I’d disown him, but he couldn’t be nearly as dear to me as he is.” That may seem a curious sentiment, to one who sees only the physical action of a game oi football, but who does not know the spirit that lies behind it, the spirit that expresses itself in such concentration, such heroic resistance, such almost superhuman effort. No one can understand such a remark who does not comprehend this side of America’s greatest and most American collegiate sport.
