Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alphonse Herman Mahrt (October 12, 1893-1970) was a professional football player and coach who played his entire career with the Dayton Triangles of the "Ohio League" and later the National Football League. He was an early proponent of the forward pass after the revolutionary play was added to an extensive list of regulations to college football in 1906. By 1911 when most of the pass restrictions were lifted, Mahrt debuted as regular back on St. Mary's Institute's (now the University of Dayton) varsity football team. Mahrt discovered that spinning the throw of the ball increased accuracy and distance, establishing an aerial offense against such teams as Xavier University and Otterbein College.show more
