From Ohio History Central
The Washington Cowboys was a semi-professional football team from Washington Court House, Ohio. The team was a founding member of and played in the Mid Eastern Football League. Established in 1994, the Cowboys emerged as the champion in the league�s first season. Over the next two seasons (1995 and 1996), the Cowboys failed to repeat as champions, but in its first three seasons, the squad amassed twenty-two wins and eight losses, including going undefeated in its championship season.
In 1997, the Cowboys joined the Northern Ohio League, a more prestigious, semi-professional football league. The team switched its name to the Courthouse Colts, bringing the Washington Cowboys� brief history to an end.
