COMMENTS: 1927 Haskell Annual
  • "The football season of 1926 was unquestionably the most significant in the history of Haskellís gridiron competition, if not, indeed, in the whole history of the Indian race. It saw at Haskell the dedication of the first and only Indian stadium and at the same time brought forth the strongest eleven which ever brought glory and fame to the Purple and Gold".
