Biography

Johnny Musso (born March 6, 1950) is an American former football player, a running back for three seasons in the National Football League with the Chicago Bears. He previously played three seasons in the Canadian Football League and one in the World Football League.

Early years

Born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama, Musso graduated from its Banks High School in 1968, and played college football at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa under head coach Bear Bryant. He was an All-American in 1971 and led the Crimson Tide to an undefeated regular season and a berth in the Orange Bowl against top-ranked Nebraska.

Musso was inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame in 1989, and the College Football Hall of Fame in 2000.

Professional career

Musso was a third round selection in the 1972 NFL draft, 62nd overall, by the Chicago Bears. He opted for a higher offer in Canada, and played for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League for three seasons (1972–1974), where he ran for 1029 yards in 1973 and was a West All-Star.

In March 1974, he was selected by the Birmingham Americans in the first round (7th overall) of the WFL Pro Draft. In 1975, he rushed for 681 yards.

After the WFL folded, he signed with the Bears in late November 1975, and was the backup to Walter Payton. Musso had surgery on his right knee in August 1978 and spent the season on injured reserve; he failed his physical in July 1979 and retired.
