Evolution of the PassBack Football

A pumpkin, that's how it all started. While watching a football game at a friend’s home on Halloween, “Inventor”, Mike McGonigle noticed this goofy looking pumpkin staring down at him. The pumpkin’s wide smile seemed to be daring Mike to pick it up ... and pick it up he did. Without giving it a second thought, Mike chucked it at the wall. Lo and behold, it came back to him in a slight spiral.

Mike returned home and began lopping his old nerf balls into flat footballs. These, like the pumpkin, came spiraling back when he tossed them against a wall. The PassBack was born.

Mike met Webb Nelson, a Seattle toy manufacturer and importer. With Webb's help, a prototype was developed and put into limited circulation. Webb had contacts at Hasbro, the manufacturer of Nerf products, and shared the story of Mike’s odd ball with them. Hasbro introduced the pass back Nerf football, sporting the NFL logo and their Turbo Blast-back name, a nerf ball. Approximately 1 million balls were sold during their 2 ½ year licensing period.

Today the Passback Football is now recognized as one of the  leading “FootBall” Training Aids in the World.  

          Now used in YOUTH, HIGH SCHOOLS, COLLEGE and NFL Football programs all over the World!
