Following two years of war and disease, life returned to normal for the Dayton Triangles football team in 1919. With their coach and star quarterback back from the war, the Triangles looked to prove their mettle against the top competition in the Ohio League. Getting games against the likes of the Canton Bulldogs and Massillon Tigers, however, remained a daunting challenge.
The 1918 Dayton Triangles must deal with the constraints imposed by war in Europe and an influenza pandemic at home. The Triangles persevere under the guidance of fill-in coach Earle “Greasy” Neale and the management of Carl “Scummy” Storck.
