As part of a joint effort with museums in Stark and Tuscarawas Counties looking to provide some educational opportunities, the Pro Football Hall of Fame is joining in to present content for teachers, parents and students every Friday at Noon. So far, the Hall of Fame Youth and Education team has covered “Careers in the NFL” and the “Walter Payton Man of the Year.” These programs can be viewed on the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Facebook page - www.facebook.com/ProFootballHOF

This Friday (4/3) the Pro Football Hall of Fame is proud to present another 30-minute Educational Program focused on why the Pro Football Hall of Fame is here – the history of the great game that is football.

This presentation will go through the history of the football – using some artifacts the Hall of Fame has, that are part of the extensive collection the museum houses. Instead of using pictures or slides to show students the history of the game, the Youth and Education team uses football helmets to show how much the game of football has changed over time. Not only can you see this change in helmets, but other items like cleats, the football, shoulder pads and even how the game is played on the field.

What each parent, teacher and student should see though is that all of these things have made the game what it is today – but the Hall of Fame’s values of Commitment, Integrity, Courage, Respect and Excellence have not changed since the NFL first began in Canton, Ohio in 1920.

The Pro Football Hall of Fame wants those who are viewing this program to see just how much change the game of football has gone through and how it will forever be changing as we move forward. These changes make the game what it is today, just like those who played and currently play it leave an impact on the game. The game of football would not be what it is today without the influence of great people – like those who are enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

This video is part of a 6-part Educational video series created by the Hall of Fame’s Youth and Education Department for parents, teachers and students to help further their education from home or the classroom.
