Hominy Indians


For nearly a decade beginning in the early 1920s Hominy would be home to a professional football team.

Deemed the Hominy Indians, they would go on to defeat the New York Giants in 1927, who just prior to the event, had been named champions of the National Football League.

Other notable achievements of the ‘all Indian’ (though not all from the same tribe) team included a 28 game winning streak.

The team disbanded after the conclusion of the 1932 season, due to the Great Depression.
