Donald Montgomery Hutson (born January 31, 1913 in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, died June 26, 1997) was an NFL Hall of Fame wide reciever.

Hutson attended the University of Alabama from 1932 to 1935, and was a team-mate of Bear Bryant. Hutson earned All-Southern and All-American honors, starred in the Rose Bowl and made a place for himself on the "All-Time Alabama Team".

Hutson played professional football eleven years for the Green Bay Packers. During those seasons (1935 to 1945), he led the NFL in scoring 5 years with 138 points in one year and a career total of 823. Green Bay won 87 games during Hutson's tenure. The Packers have honored Hutson by retiring his #14 jersey, a first for Green Bay, and named their indoor practice facility the "Don Hutson Center." Hutson was a charter member of both the college and professional Football Halls of Fame, as well as the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame.
