Dick Miller - "Triumph"

Selected by Dick Miller, a sportswriter for the Indianapolis Times and noted football official. As early as 1924, he named an all-state team. He selected a mythical state champion from 1927 until 1938, often by pairing two top teams in an unofficial state title game.

This selection was sanctioned by the Indiana High School Athletic Association, not as an official state championship, but as the "Most Outstanding Team." The recipient was awarded the Indianapolis Times Trophy "Triumph."
