The "Galloping Ghost" (Red Grange) was named the greatest college football player of all time.

Does he count?

Grantland Rice wrote this of him:
A streak of fire, a breath of flame
Eluding all who reach and clutch;
A gray ghost thrown into the game
That rival hands may never touch;
A rubber bounding, blasting soul
Whose destination is the goal Red Grange of Illinois!
