John Raymond Strzykalski (December 14, 1921 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin – June 19, 2002 in Hendersonville, North Carolina) was an American football running back for the San Francisco 49ers of the NFL. He was drafted out of Marquette University by the Green Bay Packers in the 1946 NFL Draft, and the 49ers of the AAFC. Despite having grown up in Wisconsin, he felt that he stood a better chance in the new league. Known as "Johnny Strike" to Niner fans, he was always a crowd favorite, well after his retirement after the 1952 season. He was one of five 49ers named All-Pro after the 1950 season.
