          Sorry everyone. One website that I used as a reference has him listed as being with San Diego from 61-62. All the other ones I looked at after your comments only has him there in 61.

          However we do have a winner even with the wrong data.

          80stheman is Trivia King For The Day!!!!!!!

          Bob Scarpitto is who I was looking for as the answer. He played for the Broncos from 62-67 and was selected as an All Pro in 1966. He played Flanker and his last three seasons with the Broncos he also played as the Punter.

            Woo Hoo! I thought it might be him, 'cause I new he was an AFL All Star one season and played for Denver for six, but the 2 seasons in SD threw me. Scarpitto was my Dad's favorite Bronco from back in the day.

                  Mike Anderson was drafted in the 6th round of the 2000 draft. In his rookie year he ran for 1487 yards and won the NFL Offensive Rookie Of The Year award. Unfortunately he had a hard time staying healthy 2 seasons in which he played in every game. In 2006 Anderson was waived by the Broncos due to salary cap reasons.

                  Anderson spent 4 years in the Marine Corp. Thanks Mike for your service. :clap:

                              Rich Jackson was drafted by the Raiders and played one season with them. We traded several players including Lionel Taylor to the Raider to get him and he did not disappoint. The Raiders were playing him as a LB and we moved him to defensive end. He excelled at the end.

                              He was

                              2-Time AFL All-Star (1968, 1969)

                              AFL All-Time 2nd Team

                              3-Time Pro Bowler (1968, 1969, 1970)

                              3-Time 1st Team All-Pro (1968, 1969, 1970)

                              It has been said the Deacon Jones came up with the head slap but it has also been said that Tombstone did it first. The head slap was banned after the tackles complained that he was knocking them silly.

                              His Nickname, Jackson said:

                              “A portion of the field we played on in high school was a fireman’s graveyard. Tombstone is the termination of life. The stone is the symbol of death and, when you put the tomb and the stone together, that is the end of the road. A lot of people felt like the end of the road and that sort of thing was appropriate. People liked that and my style of play.”
