From tackle to touch, pickup games to the pros – in every backyard, blacktop, homefield and huddle, there is a feeling only football can inspire.

Those who pursue it become stronger through the process, their faces as varied and diverse as the playbooks that guide them. Behind every snap there is a story. Each play has its purpose. The game teaches you things, and even in the smallest victories or the shortest rushes, there are moments worth remembering. These memories last forever and forge friendships across lines of age, gender, background or ability. They inspire your biggest accomplishments and encourage you to make your play.
