    100 Years Ago: Football's First Forward Pass

    They called it the "projectile pass" back then.
    On Sept. 5, 1906, Saint Louis University's Bradbury Robinson tossed a pigskin to teammate Jack Schneider. It was a remarkably creative play for the era, one that ultimately became known as the forward pass.
