Standing 5'11" and weighting only 160 pounds, John 'Paddy' Driscoll was one of early football's best quarterbacks. Not big, even by 1920 standards, Driscoll was the nation's star quarterback while attending Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, his birthplace. Driscoll joined the Chicago Cardinals in the newly formed American Professional Football Association in 1920, where he played quarterback, punted, kicked field goals and even coached for three years, 1920-1922. For years his 50-yard dropkick field goal was the NFL record. A brilliant field general, Paddy Driscoll was traded to the cross-town rivals, the Chicago Bears to start the 1926 season. Paddy Driscoll was elected to Football Hall of Fame in 1965.
