Gerald McNeil is a former professional American football player. He was a wide receiver who often returned punts and kickoffs. McNeil's small stature of 5 ft 7 in (1.70 m) and 145 lb (65.8 kg) made him difficult to grab hold of and tackle and led to his nickname "The Ice Cube". He also has a brother Pat McNeil who played football.
