A 1920s-era Greyhound Football Team Scrimmages on a Makeshift Field

By University of Indianapolis


Cardinal and grey became the official University colors in 1919 (based on student admiration for the hues in a favorite professor’s dress). It wasn’t until 1926 that students chose a mascot. The consensus was that the greyhound is “a long lean animal renowned for its speed, jumping prowess, and fighting heart,” also the traits of an Indiana Central athlete. Though the University’s name changed in 1986, its students are Greyhounds to this day, competing in NCAA Division II.Use of this image is restricted to projects related to Destination Indiana.
