Trivia

The football huddle was invented by Gallaudet University quarterback Paul D. Hubbard in 1892. The school was one of the first for the education of deaf, so plays were conveyed via hand signals.
 To stop other teams from stealing the plays, Hubbard had players form
 a tight-knit circle to call the plays.
