Staten Island Stapletons
Based in the Stapleton section of Staten Island, the Stapletons were a professional team founded in 1915. In 1924 they claimed the New York Metropolitan championship by beating the best independent pro teams in the area. The following season the New York Giants moved into the Polo Grounds, and on Thanksgiving day, 1925 the Giants and the Stapletons began their New York rivalry. The Stapletons played in the NFL from 1929 to 1930, and from 1931 to 1932 under the shortened nickname the "Stapes". Jack Shapiro, who was a blocking back for the Stapletons, was the shortest player in NFL history.
