Detroit football formed at its university, about the time Henry was designing the Model T.  The Heralds matriculated from U of Detroit to semi-pro status in 1911, taking on the tough competition found in the bruising Ohio League.

The Detroit Heralds were part of the quartet (Buffalo All-Americans, Chicago Tigers and Columbus Panhandles) that engaged the APFA's organizing ten in 1920, making it an NFL charter team. The following year, the Heralds morphed into the Detroit Tigers, ceasing operation after the 1921 season. 

(The Detroit Lions arrived from Portsmouth, Ohio in 1934, where it began as the Spartans in 1929.)
