The Football History Dude – Ralph Hay – The Founder of the NFL
This episode we fire up the DeLorean and head back to explore the life and career of Ralph Hay, The Founder of the NFL. He was an owner of an auto dealership and the Canton Bulldogs, a professional football team. Professional football in the Ohio region was at the brink of extinction, so Mr. Hay gathered together representatives from 11 different teams on September 17, 1920 to discuss the formation of a new league. The meeting would result in formation of the American Professional Football Association, which would later become the NFL. So, strap on your seat belt, and let’s get ready to take this baby up to 88mph.
