One Response to Career Leaders

  1. Tom says:

    The biggest single play maker in all five offensive categories in AFL history was Keith Lincoln. Lincoln’s 103 yard kickoff return, 91 yard pass reception, 86 yard rush from scrimmage, 57 yard punt return and 53 yard pass completion for a total of 390 yards and touchdowns scored in all five categories, puts the former Monrovia High School Wildcat and Washington State Cougar star in a league all his own.
