Bill Kelly (American football)

William C. "Wild Bill" Kelly was a professional American football player. He was born in Denver, but grew up in Missoula, Montana. Kelly's legend started when he led Missoula High School to the school's first state championship in 1921; the win made Kelly a local hero, he was recruited to play for the hometown college, the University of Montana. It didn't take long for him to make his mark at the college level—as a sophomore, he ran 9 times for scores of longer than 40 yards, he played quarterback. He performed as a kick returner and during his final two seasons he ran back 5 kickoffs, including 2 of more than 90 yards. Although his skills were legendary, he was not surrounded with enough talent at Montana to deliver a winning season during his college career. However, he provided the fans with more than their share of excitement. Kelly never lost to rival Montana State University, leading the team to huge wins in 1925 and 1926, he scored a total of 7 touchdowns in the two games to go along with 4 interceptions.

In the 1927 East-West Shrine Game, Kelly threw the only touchdown pass of the day, which provided the margin of victory in a 7-3 win by West. After college, Kelly went on to play for the National Football League's New York Yankees, Frankford Yellow Jackets and Brooklyn Dodgers from 1927 through 1930. Kelly collapsed and died while watching a football game in New York at the age of 26; the College Football Hall of Fame inducted Kelly in 1969. In 1971, he was named as the quarterback of the East-West Shrine Game's all-time team. Bill "Wild Bill" Kelly at the College Football Hall of Fame Pro Football Research Association
