____________________________

Royal blue exhibits a champion. 

A playoff wasn't in the mix and, fortunately, unneeded in Year One.  To shutout Jim Thorpe's powerhouse Canton Bulldogs in a pair of games was irrefutable dominance. In lieu of a title game, an owners' vote (!)  was a fait accompli for the lone undefeated,    the six wins and tied thrice Akron Pros®.  

The Pros featured star runner and kick returner Fritz Pollard, an artful dodger who foretold the resistance in professional sport that Jackie Robinson would face thirty years later.

Sharp ballcap, tribute to the surprise team that quietly made history.
