Francis Joseph "Bucko" Kilroy (May 30, 1921 – July 10, 2007) was an American football offensive lineman in the National Football League for the Philadelphia Eagles. He also played on the defensive line and was often called the toughest, if not the dirtiest, player of that era. Despite that reputation he won two championships as a lineman for the 1948 and 1949 Eagles and was a Pro-Bowl selection 3 times during his career. Kilroy went on to work as a scout for the Dallas Cowboys and later he became the General Manager of the New England Patriots in the 1980s when they went to their first ever Super Bowl in 1985 (losing to the Bears). He was born in the Port Richmond section of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he attended Northeast Catholic High School and Temple University. Bucko is inducted into the North Catholic HS Hall of Fame and the Philadelphia Sports Hall of Fame. He died in 2007 at the age of 86.
