The American Professional Football Association was formed in 1920 and the Akron Pros were named the first champions, based on their undefeated record. In 1922, the name was changed to the National Football League and the Canton Bulldogs were champions that season.

Ohio leads the country in the production of tomato juice and is second only to California in tomato growing. Tomato juice has been the official state beverage since 1965.

The Toledo War in the mid 1830s was a dispute between Ohio and Michigan over a strip of land in what is now Northwest Ohio containing Toledo. Although no one was killed as a result of the "war" shots were fired at Phillips Corners in Fulton County Ohio in 1835 (no injuries), and later that year, Sherriff Wood from Monroe County MI, was injured when he was stabbed with a pen knife while attempting to arrest members of Major Stickney's family in Toledo. A resolution to the dispute finally arrived in 1836, when, after much debate and two ratification conventions in Ann Arbor, Toledo was given to the state of Ohio while Michigan received much of what is now the Upper Penninsula. The real victor of the Toledo war is still being debated.

Girty's Island is in the Maumee River. Flatrock township, city of Florida, Ohio. You can trust this answer because I am currently researching the island and have been on the island serveral times.

In what Ohio town are the Dum Dum suckers and the famous Etcha Sketch made? Bonus Questions. What is the name of the companies for each of these products? No Google searching, ok?

DumDums are made in Bryan Ohio by Spangler Candy Company. Etch-a-Sketch was made by Ohio Art Company, also in Bryan until a few years ago. It is still an Ohio Art Company product, but production was moved to China several years ago. One reason given for that was to reduce production costs low enough to meet Wally Worlds requests (Demands). Both companies are still basically family run companies.

Have fun, and we might all even learn something.

Garrett Morgan was born in Kentucky and moved to two different Ohio cities. He is known for inventing the gas mask, a zig zag attachment for sewing machines, and the Morgan traffic signal. Name the two cities he lived in.
The 2 cities Garrett Morgan lived in are Cincinnati & Cleveland.

New Question:

The award for the "best" college football player in the country is named for a famous football legend and 1st president of The New York Downtown Athletic Club.

What's his name (easy stuff), and What Ohio two schools did he coach in the late 1800's when they beat the Ohio State Buckeye's three different times holding them scoreless twice and giving up points one time in a 12-6 decision.
