George Gregory Glamack (June 7, 1919 - March 10, 1987) (born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania) was an American basketball player.

The 6'7" giant, during that era, attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Glamack, an All-America in 1940 and 1941, was nicknamed the Blind Bomber because of his poor eyesight and remarkably accurate hook shot. Glamack actually shot the ball based on the painted lines on the floor. He scored 45 points against Clemson in 1941, still the fourth-highest total in UNC history. That year, he led UNC to a Southern Conference championship and the NCAA tournament. In both 1940 and 1941 he won the Helms Foundation Player of the Year which was the only MVP award of that time. He is one of eight players to have his jersey number retired by UNC, the others being Jack Cobb, Lennie Rosenbluth, Phil Ford, James Worthy, Michael Jordan, Antawn Jamison, and Tyler Hansbrough.

Glamack had a modest professional career in which he was one of the keys who led the Rochester Royals to a pair of National Basketball League championships.
