AMERICAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE (AFL) 1960 - 1969
Remember the Fallen Players of the AFL

This website now includes the name of every man who played in the American Football League.  These names can be seen by clicking here.  This page, however, is to remember and honor those AFL warriors who have passed on.

Listed below are the names of deceased AFL players that I am aware of.  These lists were compiled from information provided by AFL fans, players and officials or their families, and in some cases from my own memory and research.

Players are listed by team, with the player's position, years of service for the team while in the AFL (1960-1969), and (where known) the date of of the individual's passing.  Men who served with more than one team are listed multiple times.  Members of the American Football League Hall of Fame, or other notables, are linked to pages elsewhere on this site.   Deceased former head coaches, owners or contributors to the history of the AFL are also shown.  Players' active years are from The Other League by Jack Horrigan and Mike Rathet.

           Three players died of injuries sustained on the field of play.  Howard Glenn, an offensive tackle, died of a spinal cord injury in the Titans' 27-21 loss to Houston at Jeppesen Field on October 9, 1960.  Read a 2010 story about Howard Glenn HERE.  Chiefs' running back Mack Lee Hill injured a knee in the Chiefs' 34-25 loss to the Bills on December 12, 1965 and died on the operating table, reportedly of heat stroke, on December 14, 1965, in Kansas City.   Although wide receiver Stone Johnson was never on an active AFL roster, the Chiefs retired his number 33, after he died of a spinal cord injury sustained in an exhibition game on August 21, 1963.
 
           In addition,
Ralph Anderson, a wide receiver with the Los Angeles Chargers, died of a diabetic reaction on November 26, 1960, the day before the Chargers' 52-28 thumping of the Raiders at the LA Coliseum. 

This list's contributors, to whom I extend my thanks, are:

          The men listed below shared a common bond: whether they were first-round draft choices or walk-ons; ten-year starters or one-game substitutes; AFL Hall of Fame members or third-stringers; they all had a role in creating the genesis of modern professional football, in the league that issued a challenge and showed that, competitively, the establishment could be defeated: they were a part of the AMERICAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

2009

          Twenty-one former American Football League players passed away in 2009.  They included one who should be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but isn't: Jack Kemp.  In addition to these players, on March 29 former AFL coaching great Lou Saban died, another man who should be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.  Player positions and the AFL teams they played on are listed below.

          I'm remiss in posting the AFL's deaths in 2010.  I'll correct that soon.  Meanwhile, Todd Tobias has a great tribute to the AFL players who passed away in 2011. 
           See it at  http://www.talesfromtheamericanfootballleague.com/2011/12/afl-in-memoriam-2011.html
 
          Below is a partial list of AFL players who died in 2011, followed by a summary of AFL teams showing their deceased players.  If you can add to this list, please contact me.
 

2011

          At least two American Football League players who should be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame passed away in 2011: Cookie Gilchrist and Houston Antwine; and Tom Addison deserves consideration for the seminal role he played in the formation of the first league-recognized players' association.
