The University of Illinois' "Galloping Ghost" Red Grange played five games for Halas in 1925, signed to play in a different league and then returned to Chicago in 1929, starring for the Bears for the next five season. Grange scored 32 career touchdowns but his biggest play was a touchdown-saving tackle in the 1933 NFL championship game that preserved a 13-10 win over the New York Giants. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1963.
