George Gerhard Ruetz (September 23, 1893 – May 27, 1927) was a professional football coach in the National Football League for the Racine Legion. Prior to that he had been one of Racine's finest amateur players from about 1910-1920. In June 1922 George traveled to Canton, Ohio and made a $100.00 payment to secure the Legion franchise in the newly formed NFL. He also served as the team's general manager in 1922 and 1923. Outside of football, George owned and operated a gocery store in Racine. He scheduled the Legion's very first NFL game, played against the Chicago Bears.
