When Theodore Roosevelt founded the NCAA on March 31, 1906, he had a vision in sight to “encourage reforms” in college sports. He did that because college football in the early 20th century had a high number of repeated injuries and deaths and “prompted many college and universities to discontinue the sport.
In this paragraph they talking about how Roosevelt was trying to change the way college sports was played, football particularly because people were getting injured an dying.
This is important so that these college players can stay safe and avoid death or any injuries.
This connects to me because I have a friend that play foot ball.
