Paul Eugene Jappe (born January 16, 1898 in Union Hill, New Jersey; † April 1, 1989 in Daytona Beach, Florida) was an American football player in the National Football League (NFL). He played for the New York Giants, among other teams.
Paul Jappe attended high school in Brooklyn and studied at Syracuse University from 1921 to 1923. He also played American football there and was honored by his college for his athletic achievements all three years. In 1925, Jappe signed a professional contract with the New York Giants and transferred to the Brooklyn Lions a year later. In 1927 he returned to the Giants, who by then had secured the services of notable players such as Steve Owen and Pete Henry. In this season Jappe won the NFL championship with his team. The Giants had won 11 of their 13 games. After one more year of play with the New York City team, Jappe ended his career. According to Wellington Mara, the future owner of the Giants, it was Jappe’s physicality, among other things, that led him to stay involved in football as a child and succeed his father, Tim Mara, as owner of the Giants.
