James R. Ludlow "Lud" Wray (February 7, 1894 – July 24, 1967) was a professional American football player, coach, and co-founder, with college teammate Bert Bell, of the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League. He was the first coach of the Boston Braves (now Washington Redskins) in 1932 and of the Eagles, 1933-1935. His career coaching record was 13–25–3.

Prior to this, Wray played college football at the University of Pennsylvania where he earned All-American honors. He also played the position of center for the Buffalo Niagaras, Buffalo Prospects, and Buffalo All-Americans from 1918 until 1921. For two of those years (1920 and 1921), Buffalo was a member of the National Football League (then called the American Professional Football Association).
