John Houston Stockton (September 23, 1901 - April 27, 1967) was a professional football player for the Frankford Yellow Jackets from 1926 until 1928. Stockton was a member of Yellow Jackets' 1926 NFL Championship team. He later split the 1929 season between the Boston Bulldogs and the Providence Steamroller. Hust was the grandfather of basketball Hall of Fame inductee, John Stockton, who played for the Utah Jazz from 1984-2003.[1]

During a Thanksgiving Day game in 1926, a pass from Stockton to Two-Bits Homan netted the Yellow Jackets a 20-14 victory over the Green Bay Packers.[2] Stockton made the same pass to Homan again that season, this time against the Chicago Cardinals for a 7-6 Frankford win.[3] In 1928 against the Chicago Cardinals, Stockton threw an 18-yard pass to Carl Waite for a 19-0 win for the Jackets.[4]
