Football

Football an American sport played by two teams of eleven players on a rectangular with goalposts at each end. The offense attempts to advance the football down the field by running with or passing it. They must advance it at least ten yards in four downs to receive a new set of four downs and continue the drive; if not, they turn over the football to the opposing team. Most points are scored by advancing the ball into the opposing team's end zone for a touchdown or kicking the ball through the opponent's goalposts for a field goal. The team with the most points at the end of a game wins.

 

When people think about football, the first thing that comes to mind is big, muscular, and physically strong men. However, football requires more than just physical strength. Even though the demands of each position are different, the mental aspects of each position can impact whether or not a player is going to be successful on the field, but these mental obstacles are often overlooked. Athletes, in any sport, need to train their mind just as much as they train their bodies.
