Joseph ‘Red’ Dunn
Curly Lambeau called Red Dunn a selfless team leader. In just five seasons with the Green Bay Packers, from 1927-31, he passed for 31 touchdowns and led the team to three straight NFL championships.
Dunn was a star at Marquette University before playing for the Milwaukee Badgers in 1925 and Chicago Cardinals in 1926. In 1927, the 6’0”, 178-pound Dunn came to the Packers.
Dunn was considered a tremendous ball handler, passer and a great on-field leader. When Dunn retired in 1931, Lambeau altered his box formation. After Dunn, Lambeau’s quarterback became blockers and receivers. Halfbacks like Arnie Herber, Cecil Isbell and Irv Comp passed the football.
