One precursor to Walter Camp's influence was William Ebb Ellis, a student at the Rugby School in England. In 1823, Ellis was the first person noted for picking up the ball during the soccer game and running with it, thereby breaking and changing the rules. In 1876, at the Massosoit convention, the the first attempts at writing down the rules of American football were made. Walter Camp edited every American Football rulebook until his death in 1925.
The defense may also score touchdowns during the game. This is done by either getting the ball from an opponent if they drop it or intercepting the ball when the offense attempts to throw it to a receiver.
The defense has stopped the offense after the offense has been unsuccessful in getting ten yards in four tries.
