Harry Schuh (September 25, 1942 – May 20, 2013) was an American college and Professional Football player who retired as a player after the 1974 season. He was an All-American tackle at the University of Memphis in 1963 and 1964. He was the third player drafted overall in the 1965 American Football League Draft, after Joe Namath and Larry Elkins. He played for the American Football League's Oakland Raiders from 1965 through 1969 as the starting right tackle, winning the AFL Championship in 1967 and playing in the second AFL-NFL World Championship Game. Schuh was an AFL Western Division All-Star in 1967, an AFL All-League tackle in 1969, and an AFC selection for the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl in 1970 as a member of the NFL's Raiders. But he was traded before the 1971 season for his replacement at right tackle, Bob Brown (offensive lineman), an eventual member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Schuh finished his career with the Green Bay Packers. He was a member of the Raiders' All-Time Team.
