The Story of the Dayton Triangles


Dayton Daily News
Friday, October 27, 1922

In "Swede" Youngstrom, the Buffalo All-Americans will present to the local football fans Sunday afternoon one of the greatest guards ever seen on any line.

At Dartmouth three years ago, Youngstrom won undying fame as one of the most brilliant performers at his position in the history of the collegiate sport. He was picked by Walter camp for the latter's mythical All-American eleven and by practically every other critic in the country who attempted a similar selection.
Blocking punts is the special forte of this great guard and while at Dartmouth he won a game against Brown in this fashion. Big and powerful, with oodles of zip and dash, the "Swede" is sure to cause a lot of trouble for the Triangles, Sunday afternoon.

Other stars in the Buffalo lineup are Jim Laird, the noted fullback from Colgate, Tommy Hughitt, former All-American quarterback from Michigan, Oscar Anderson, the brilliant backfield performer of Colgate, Urban and Morrisey, linemen from Boston University and Charlie Guy, the famous center of Washington and Jefferson.
Against the aggregation of all stars the Triangles will present their usual lineup and are confident they will be the third team in three years to take a fall out of the Buffalo brilliants.

This is scheduled to be the final home game of the season for the local outfit and with their goal line still uncrossed they are anxious to start their foreign invasion with a clean slate.

The game will be called at 2 o'clock and reserved seats can be had at Hoppey's, Niehaus and Dohse's, Shwabs, Kohler's, the Radio café and Koors 29.
