William Webb Ellis

The game of football was played at Rugby School from 1750 to 1869. The game had no fixed limit of players with enormous rolling mauls, caused many major injures.
During the game of football in 1823 a boy called William Webb Ellis caught the ball and started running with it to the other team’s goal post.”What is he doing?” one of his friend said as he looked at him running to the try.
And that is how rugby got to be a game.
