Playing the game of Football might be one of the biggest morality builders a young man can experience. To truly learn from, cultivate and test one's morality, they must be confronted with struggle. Football is a physical and emotional struggle. While it is NOT combat and should never be compared to war, it IS the closest a free society can come in peacetime. I personally learned a lot from my time playing contact football and it greatly shaped the person I am today.
