John Don Looney (born September 2, 1916) is a former professional American football end in the National Football League. He was born in Sulphur Springs, Texas. He played three seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles (1940) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (1941–1942). He was the first receiver in NFL history to have over 100 yards receiving in each of his first two games, a feat which was not equaled until the 2008 NFL season by another Eagles wide receiver, DeSean Jackson.[1] As of April 2013 he is the 4th oldest living former professional football player.


His son, Joe Don, also played in the NFL.
