POST WAR & APFA YEARS - 1919 to 1921

With the war ended, football came back to life in eastern Indiana. The Flyers played some strong teams, including the Wabash AA, Fort Wayne War Vets and Cincinnati Celts. The 1919 team finished with an 4-1-1 record. In 1920, the Flyers were one of the original 14 teams in the American Professional Football Association. Starting the season with big 45-0 loss to the Rock Island Independents, the Decatur Staleys cancelled the next weeks game. The Flyers found it difficult to schedule another game. While the team was idle, most of its players signed on to play with other local teams. The Flyers did have a game scheduled against the Dayton Triangles on November 7th, but that game was rained out. The Flyers came back in late November and early December and won 3 non-APFA games, finishing with an 3-1-0 overall (0-1-0 APFA) record. Coming back to the APFA in 1921, the Flyers opened the season by crushing the non-APFA Elwood Legion, then lost league games in Evansville against the Crimson Giants, and a loss at home against the Cincinnati Celts. Scheduled to play again on November 13th at Green Bay, that game was cancelled, leaving the Flyers with a 1-2-0 overall (0-2-0 APFA) record. The Flyers mark in APFA football was an unimpressive 0-3-0. But during 1920 and 1921, the Flyers posted a 4-0-0 mark against non-APFA teams. Including 1919, the Flyers posted a 8-1-1 record against non-APFA teams.
