The Pottsville Maroons played in the National Football League (NFL) from 1925 to 1928. The team was owned by Dr. John Streigel and played at Minersville Park, now the site of King's Village shopping plaza. The team became the Boston Bulldogsin 1929 (not related to the Boston Bulldogs of the American Football League three years earlier). The NFL considers the Bulldogs and the Maroons to be the same team.

The Maroons, from Pottsville, Pennsylvania, were one of the best teams in the league in 1925 and 1926, recording regular-season records of 10-2 and 10-2-1, respectively. However, the team suffered losing records the next two seasons. In 1929, the team then moved to Boston, Massachusetts, and became the Bulldogs, but folded after the season.
