Jim 'Bucky' Mutscheller (born March 31, 1930 in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania) is a former professional American football player who played tight end for nine seasons for the Baltimore Colts. Mutscheller played football, basketball, and baseball at Beaver Falls High School, and three seasons of varsity football at Notre Dame under coach Frank Leahy from 1949 to 1951, including on the 1949 national championship team. Mutscheller played both defensive end and offense for the Fighting Irish, and served as team captain his senior year.

The New York Yanks drafted Mutscheller, but by the time Bucky's two-year stint in the Marines ended, the Baltimore Colts had bought his contract. Mutscheller played for the Colts from 1954 to 1961, amassing 220 catches, 3685 yards, and 40 touchdowns.

In 1976, Mutscheller was inducted into the inaugural class of the Beaver County Sports Hall of Fame.
