A star player, Harold "Red" Grange, generated tremendous excitement among fans that carried over from college to professional football. Grange was a three-time All-American while playing for the University of Illinois. His brother, Garland Grange, was an outstanding football player as well. However, it was Red Grange, famed as the "galloping ghost," who won national recognition in 1924 when he rushed for 303 yards and scored six touchdowns in a game against the University of Michigan. When Red Grange signed to play with the Chicago Bears in 1925, he provided an enormous boost to the team and to the new National Football League. Grange attracted photographers wherever he went, such as in this staged "photo opportunity" (below) with a pretty young woman kicking a football.
