Red Grange is often recognized as the first star with drawing power of the National Football League. He played at Illinois as a collegian and began his NFL career with the Chicago Bears in the latter part of the 1925 season after also playing at the college level that year. He debuted on Thanksgiving Day against the Chicago Cardinals. The Bears packed nine games into the last three weeks of the season including four road games to close out the schedule, showing off the back who once rushed for over 400 yards in a college game. When the Pro Football Hall of Fame welcomed its first group of inductees in 1963, Grange was one of three former Bears included in the initial class of honorees.
