Ray McLean American football head coach

Ray "Scooter" McLean (December 6, 1915 - March 4, 1964) was a football player and coach at both the collegiate and professional levels, but may be best remembered for preceding Vince Lombardi as head coach of the Green Bay Packers in 1958. McLean was a native of Lowell, Massachusetts and Concord, New Hampshire who played both football and basketball at St. Anselm College in New Hampshire. He was drafted by the Chicago Bears in 1940 and played eight years with the team, and also found time during the offseason to play semipro baseball. Though his name is listed as Ray McLean his real last name is MacLean, and was changed because the press would always spell it wrong. During his time with the Bears, McLean played on both sides of the ball, catching 103 passes for over 2,200 yards and 21 touchdowns, while also gaining 412 yards via the running game. On defense, he intercepted 18 opponent tosses, while his special teams work also sparkled with three punt returns for touchdowns, one an 89-yard dash against the crosstown Chicago Cardinals. In his final season (1947), he served as the team's kicker.
