In the late 19th century, the history of what football is today had just begun. Originally referred to as “gridiron football”, which was related to the English sports soccer and rugby, quickly became more and more popular in universities across the country. The first American football “contest” was held on November 6, 1869, between Princeton and Rutgers in New Brunswick, New Jersey (now known as Princeton University).
The person responsible for this transition from rugby to the sport we know and love today is named Walter Camp, who is known as the “Father of American Football”. He helped create and shape the rules behind the game by partnering with the Intercollegiate Football Association (IFA).
With football being America’s favorite sport and the 153rd season of college football starting, we thought it would be fitting to ask our agents who your favorite college football team, your predictions for the season, and what your favorite game day traditions are! Tell us the story behind your love for the game below!
While some people might not care about what this widely loved food is referred to as, others feel strongly about the correct name for this food.

If you are like most of us, we love Summer for the sunshine and rest it brings, but can often get bogged down and feel unproductive.
We have created this article to help you manage your summer well so that you can build healthy habits, stay on top of your work, and have the relaxing summer we all hope for!
3 Time Management Tips:
Write down your goals for the summer!
Written priorities and personal goals will help you become more aware of your goals and help you focus on what is most important to you. By writing down specific and measurable ways to achieve your goals that you can refer back to, you will be able to see your progress along the way! Written goals can give you vision, hope and inspiration!
2. Stick to a schedule!
Scheduling your time well has been proven to lead to all-around personal development and discipline. Not only does creating a schedule establish a consistent routine in your life, but it can help you feel more accomplished and help your goals become more tangible. (Hint: Sticking to a schedule can help you complete jobs most efficiently and effectively on the Field!) Most importantly, it allows you to spend your time where it matters most.
3. Prioritize wisely!
Prioritizing your tasks from most important to least important can help you complete what needs to be done, on time. This will help you focus on the most important things with full attention and focus, and result in minimizing stress and feeling accomplished.
We hope these tips will help you manage your summer well so that you can maximize your time and achieve your goals!

Donut get us started about National Donut Day! Or do, because who doesn’t love donuts?
Friday, June 3rd is National Donut Day. Each year, this holiday falls on the first Friday of June. And, the history of this holiday is actually quite interesting.
National Donut Day can be traced back to the volunteers of the Salvation Army in World War 1. There was a group of volunteers who were tasked with providing comforting meals to the soldiers on the front line. These volunteers quickly found that donuts were an efficient and effective way to provide food in the difficult circumstances. They would even use war helmets to fry up donuts! In 1938, National Donut Day was established as a way to honor the volunteers of the Salvation Army that showed up to help soldiers in the first World War.
How cool is that? Be sure to celebrate with a donut or two today! Most donut shops across the country have some sort of donut special (some even have free donuts– and we know our Agents love a good freebie)!
What is your favorite kind of donut? Let us know in the comments!
We are back with one last birthday post– that is, until next year! 😉
One of the Birthday Jobs from this year’s birthday celebrations was for Agents to submit a photo of the number 12. We asked our Agents to get creative and boy did they! Our team had so much fun going through the thousands of submissions. We decided to pick 12 of our favorites to share with you. There were so many fun and creative #12 photos submitted, it was hard to pick!
Thanks to all our Agents who helped us celebrate our 12th birthday! We appreciate each and every one of you.
Keeping on the trend of our birthday jobs– we also asked Agents what their favorite thing they have ever spent their Field Agent earnings on. A lot of Agents answered with coffee, paying bills, groceries or simply saving. We also noticed a trend that a lot of Agents went on cruises or bought plane tickets for vacation with their Field Agent earnings! Sounds nice, right?
But, there were some responses that we have never heard before! Have we peaked your interest yet? We thought so! Here are some of the fun things that Agents have spent their Field Agent earnings on:
New bikes for kids for Christmas
Date night to a local steak house
$500 comic book
Family vacation on a cruise
Daughter’s prom dress
A zip line tour
Because Field Agent lets you cash out directly to your bank account, the possibilities of what you can spend your earnings on is truly endless. What do you like to spend your Field Agent earnings on? Let us know in the comments.
Twelve years ago, on April 17th, Field Agent was born! Each year, we try to do something fun to celebrate with our Agents. After all, we wouldn’t be Field Agent without our Agents!
This year, to celebrate our 12th birthday, we ran 5 different birthday jobs where we had fun with Agents all over the country and got to know them a little bit better. One of the things we asked Agents this year was their favorite part about the Field Agent App (besides making money, of course)! Here’s what some of our Agents had to say:
“I like that there are so many new products and activities to do. There is no such thing as a boring task”
“This whole entire app is my favorite I love everything about it”
“I love the randomness of the ask…go take a picture of this house, go get a chicken sandwich and tell us what you think, take a picture of the refrigerated dog food at this grocery…it’s mini-adventures!”
“It’s FUN to be an Agent and have these sort of secret missions to accomplish. It makes the routine shopping trips much more interesting. Plus, all the new products I’ve had the chance to try-and got PAID to try?! Awesome sauce.”
“How easy it is to find nearby assignments no matter where I am at any given time!”
