Early life

A native of New Richmond, Wisconsin McNally was an intelligent and unathletic youth who graduated high school at 14. He blossomed into an athlete while at Saint Johns University in Collegeville, Minn., where he became the captain of the basketball team and a letterman in track, baseball, and football, all in his junior year.

"Johnny Blood"

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." Blood and Sand was a 1922 silent movie directed by Fred Niblo and starring Rudolph Valentino, Lila Lee and Nita Naldi. ...


Using the alias "Johnny Blood" — an alias that became his nickname — McNally was able to play professional football without losing his college eligibility.


Career highlights

McNally played in the National Football League for 14 seasons, with five different teams. In his prime, McNally was 6'1" and 188 lbs., known for his speed, agility, and pass-catching ability. For other uses of National Football League, see National Football League (disambiguation). ...


He got his professional start in 1925 with the Milwaukee Badgers, where he became famous as the "Vagabond Halfback" for his off-the-field behavior and spontaneity. The Milwaukee Badgers was an football team, that played in the National Football League from 1922 to 1926. ...


In 1926 and 1927 he played for the Duluth Eskimos, and in 1926 he played with the Pottsville Maroons.


Between 1929 and 1936 he played with the Green Bay Packers, with whom he won four championships.

From 1950-1952, he coached football at Saint John's where he amassed 13-9 record during his three year stint.


Later in life

McNally returned to Saint Johns at age 42 to finish his economics degree and write a textbook on the subject. He married Veronica Muenkel in his mid-forties. They had eight children: Kevin, William, Douglas Keith, Veronica, Patricia, Kathleen, Margaret and Thomas John.


McNally's spontaneous and bizarre behavior didn't stop with his football career. Upon one occasion, out of boredom, he climbed to the top of a train, walked to the engineer's car, dropped through the ceiling, and spent the rest of the trip entertaining the drivers.


McNally was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1963. The Pro Football Hall of Fame is the National Football Leagues Hall of Fame. ...
