Harold Edward 'Red' Grange, nicknamed The Galloping Ghost , (June 13, 1903 – January 28, 1991) was a college and professional American football halfback for the University of Illinois, the Chicago Bears, and for the short-lived New York Yankees. His signing with the Bears helped legitimize the National Football League. He was a charter member of both the College and Pro Football Hall of Fame.

'Red' Wade, a star high-school football player, has intentions of going to Claxton College , which has a powerhouse football team, but changes his mind when he meets the sister of the pitiful Paramlee team and goes to college there, just as his father, an alum of the school, had wished. But his father has ordered him not to play football. Dad Wade, has offered a $100,000 endowment to his old school, not knowing his son has joined the football team, but is going to withdraw it if his son plays in the big game against Claxton. This puts 'Red' between a rock and a hard place. 

Grange could attract moviegoers as well as sports fans. He also starred in Racing Romeo (1927) and in a 12 part serial series, The Galloping Ghost , in 1931.
