How was a huddle discovered or maybe formed?

Lafayette College in Pennsylvania is accredited with the first known use of the huddle, in 1926. From the first college football game to the 1890s, players discussed the plays away from the line of scrimmage in an unorganized way, much like college football itself was. From then to the 1920s, hand signals were used in the same form, but was ineffective, because the opposing team could easily learn plays. From then on, football became more popular, and so did the huddle, and teams stopped using signals and would instead communicate the play in the huddle.
