Early years
Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Roach graduated from Highland Park High School in University Park, which had earlier produced hall of famers Bobby Layne and Doak Walker.
Roach accepted a football scholarship from Southern Methodist University. He played as a quarterback, defensive back and punter. He was a starter at quarterback as a senior.
Professional career
Chicago Cardinals
Roach was selected by the Chicago Cardinals in the third round (31st overall) in the 1956 NFL draft. As a rookie, he was used at punter. After the season, he spent two years in the U.S. Air Force.
In 1959, he returned to the team and played as a defensive back, before being named the starting quarterback late in the year.
In 1960, he became the starting quarterback, after the team lost to injury two quarterbacks during their first season in St. Louis. On July 5, 1961, in a surprising move, he was sent to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for Halfback Prentice Gautt and rookie End Taz Anderson.
Cleveland Browns
On August 8, 1961, he was traded to the Green Bay Packers in exchange for a third round draft choice (#42-John Furman).
Green Bay Packers
Roach was the backup quarterback on the Packers' 1961 and 1962 NFL championship teams, backing up Bart Starr under head coach Vince Lombardi. In 1963, when Starr injured his passing hand in the sixth game against the St. Louis Cardinals, he was held out for 4½ games and Roach was named the starter during those contests. The team was 4–1 with Starr sidelined and finished 11–2–1, but the 26–7 loss to the Chicago Bears in mid-November was critical; keeping them a half game back in the Western Conference final standings and denied the Packers a chance to win an unprecedented third consecutive NFL championship game.
He announced his retirement on May 20, 1964. On August 31, he was traded to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a third draft choice (#33-Bob Timberlake).
Dallas Cowboys
In 1964, Roach retired to work for an investment firm in Dallas, until the Dallas Cowboys convinced him to play in his home state. He was acquired after starting quarterback Don Meredith went down with a knee injury in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. He started in 4 games, passing for 349 yards, one touchdown and 6 interceptions.
Death
John Roach died 18 Feb 2021. At the time of his death, he was the only person to have played football for the Highland Park Scots, SMU Mustangs and Dallas Cowboys.
