Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Victor "Blood" McNally (November 27, 1903 - November 28, 1985) was an American football player who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. A native of New Richmond, Wisconsin McNally was an intelligent and unathletic youth who graduated from high school at age 14. He blossomed into an athlete while at Saint John's University in Collegeville, Minnesota, where he became the captain of the basketball team and a letterman in track, baseball, and football, all in his junior year. With one year of college eligibility left, McNally and a friend decided to join a professional football team. While passing by a movie theater, McNally saw the title of the film Blood and Sand on the marquee. He turned to his friend and said, "That's it. You be Sand. I'll be Blood."
