1914 Haskell football team

Haskell fielded their first football team in 1896.[3] From the 1900s to the 1930s, Haskell’s football program was referred to as the “Powerhouse of the West,” playing teams from Harvard, Yale, Brown, Missouri, Nebraska, Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Oklahoma A&M, Wisconsin and Minnesota.[4] But in 1931, a new superintendent (R. D. Baldwin) made the decision to shift the college football team to high school status following the 1931 season. With fewer teams available to play, Haskell dropped football after the 1938 season.[3] Football at Haskell would not be resumed again until 2000.[citation needed]

Men's basketball

Men's basketball at Haskell has brought nationwide attention with its ability to bring Native American talent to the basketball court.[5]
