In October of 2001, two students (Tim Osgood, Josh Amiss) got together in a business class and decided they needed something to do to pass the time. As a result from this boredom, Tim folded a single piece of paper into a football. Josh looked up at him and said "lets play!"
"I never really actually played the game", says Amiss. "But I was bored and figured, fuck it, lets try it out." That afternoon, Tim and Josh played an unorganized and very very cheap version of paper football.
Days became weeks and Tim and Josh kept playing this game, folding more and more pieces of paper into many balls, each with their own design. "Then it dawned on me," said Osgood. "I decided, fuck it, lets make a league and see what happens." And so it began. No longer just dubbed "paper football", Tim and Josh tried to think of a creative name for their new league. PFL (Paper Football League) was picked (very creative) and a league was born. A rough draft of rules were made and the two began to play. The "league" consisted of only two players, Tim and Josh. But who cared anyway.
Records were kept and eventually a super bowl was needed to decide who exactly was the best PFL player. The first ever super bowl took place in BE-12, Mr. Gearin's block 7 Business class on December 21st, 2001. A record crowd of 26 showed up to watch this sporting event. The game was catching on like a bad case of herpes.
In an exciting finish, Tim Osgood became the first ever super bowl champ and the first season was already ended.
Now today, up to 12 active players are in the league trying to make their way to the top of the charts. The PFL has a rich history and promising future. It's co-commissioners plan to keep it that way.
