Milwaukee native Joseph "Red" Dunn starred for two Wisconsin football teams. First, he led Marquette to a 17-1 overall record and two undefeated seasons in 1922 and 23. Dunn was said to be one of the most versatile players of his day. He ran, passed and punted the football and was selected captain of the team.
After graduation from Marquette, Dunn started at quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, who won championships in 1929-30-31. Once again, Dunn's versatility proved to be a key for the Packers.
