Anthony Robert Canadeo "The Gray Ghost of Gonzaga" (born May 5, 1919, in Chicago, Illinois, USA; died November 29, 2003 at age of 84) was a professional football halfback and quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. He played college football at Gonzaga University and was selected by the Packers in the ninth round (77th overall) of the 1941 NFL Draft. He joined the army in 1945, but returned in 1946 and became Green Bay's main runner. He is one of only five Green Bay Packers to have his number (3) retired by the team (Reggie White (92), Bart Starr (15), Ray Nitschke (66), and Don Hutson (14) are the others). He was the first Packer to rush for 1000 yards in a season and the third player ever in the NFL to accomplish this feat. Image File history File links Canadeo. ...

Tony Canadeo (1919-2003), American football player, who was only the third running back in National Football League (NFL) history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a single season.
Canadeo was also one of the most versatile players in NFL history.
Canadeo lacked the amazing speed and quick moves often associated with running backs, but his versatility and consistency made him one of the early greats.
Packers.com » Team » Players » Tony Canadeo (495 words)
Tony Canadeo slipped into Green Bay like a spirit, a fitting entrance for the 5-foot-11, 190-pound halfback who in his college days was known as the "Gray Ghost of Gonzaga" because of his prematurely graying hair.
But in 1942, Canadeo passed for 310 yards in a reserve role and by 1943 he was the team's rushing and passing leader, tallying 489 yards on the ground for three touchdowns while throwing for 875 yards and nine touchdowns.
Canadeo's 3 was retired by the Packers in 1952, one season after Don Hutson's 14 became the team's first officially retired number.
