Redmond Conyngham Stewart Finney Sr (born 1929) is a former American football and lacrosse player, athletic coach, teacher and headmaster. He was an All-American football and lacrosse player at Princeton during the 1950-1951 academic year. After graduating, Finney served in the Navy during the Korean War and later became a teacher then headmaster at the Gilman School.[1]

Finney played college football for the Princeton Tigers football team and was selected by both the Football Writers Association of America and the International News Service as a first-team player on their 1950 College Football All-America Teams.[2][3] He turned down an invitation to play in the Blue–Gray Football Classic to work on a thesis titled "Protestantism and Catholicism in 19th Century America." Finney also played lacrosse at Princeton and was selected as an All-American in that sport in the spring of 1951. He was the first man to be named first team All-American in two sports in the same academic year; Jim Brown later became the second person to accomplish the feat.[1]

Finney later worked as an athletic coach and teacher and subsequently became the headmaster at Gilman School in Baltimore, Maryland. He retired as headmaster at Gilman in 1992.[1]
