American Football League All-Time Team


American Football League All-Time Team

The American Football League (AFL) All- Time Team was selected in 1970 by a panel of Hall of Fame selectors comprised of professional football writers from American Football League cities. A "First" and "Second" team were selected. Since the "First team" included two "halfbacks", rather than a "halfback" and a "fullback", Cookie Gilchrist, a "fullback" who was selected as a second-team running back, is the only "fullback" on either team, and therefore the American Football League's All-Time fullback.
