The red grange?
Red was and is still to this day University of Illinois football. In 2009 outside Memorial Stadium in Champaign, Illinois the university showed their appreciation to everything he meant to Illinois football by dedicating a statue to him.
Harold (Red) Edward Grange (June 13, 1903 ? January 28, 1991), was a professional and college American football player. He was a charter member of both the College and Pro Football Hall of Fame. Harold "Red" Grange Nickname: Red Grange. The Galloping Ghost. Yes it was harorld Grange who was nicknamed the galloping ghost while he played in the 20's but I think he was a running back and not a quarterback.
