Mackrides played college football for the University of Nevada, Reno and led the nation in passing in 1946. In his last professional season in 1953, Mackrides played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and was the last Steeler to wear uniform number 13 in a regular season game until punter Jeremy Kapinos wore that number in 2010.
