James 'Jim' Head      Indiana 

Position(s): RB

James 'Jim' Head attended Evansville High School and lived in Evansville, Indiana. He was drafted in the 14th Round of the 1954 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns before playing a down at Iowa. He was considered one of the top running backs in the Pacific Coast Conference when he played for Washington State in 1951. He transferred to play at Iowa for the 1954 season, but since his original college class was due to graduate in June, he was eligible for the draft.
