BOSTON SHAMROCKS

  • The Boston Shamrocks played in the second iteration of the American Football League, and won the league championship in 1936.
  • The Shamrocks outdrew the NFL’s Boston Redskins, which was one factor prompting George Preston Marshall to move the Redskins to Washington, DC.
  • The Shamrocks signed former Heisman Trophy winner Larry Kelley to a one-game contract in 1937. However, Kelley reneged on the agreement and never played a down for the Shamrocks.
