Grand Street Local
The first college game of football occurred between Princeton and Rutgers in 1895. The game of flag football has been around for as nearly as long as tackle football. In 1931 Touch and tail football debuts in Queens, NY.
Flag football was played as a recreational activity for American military personal in the 1940s during World War II to avoid unnecessarily injuring troops. In the late 1940s, recreational leagues start popping up across the country as active young men returned home from war.
