On December 28, 1956 appeared following article at the Memphis Commercial Appeal:

Elvis, The All-American Boy, Proves A Triple Threat Mat At Touch-Football MEMPHIS – Elvis (the Pelvis) Presley, teen-agers' rock and roll idol, Elvis Presley playing touch football at the Dave Wells Community Center December 27, 1956. Several hundred people watched the singer pass, kick and run a touchdown. Presley joined the rough game shortly after lunch and played until dark, taking turn in line and backfield. Though spilled often by crisp blocking, this million dollar entertainment package came through with but a few bruises and contusions – his manager - Colonel Tom Parker - will be happy to hear.
