Greatest Broncos Fullback – Cookie Gilchrist
Former Denver Broncos PR man, Jim Saccomano, posts fantastic stories on Broncos history to the team website. Recently he detailed the turbulent career of famed fullback, Cookie Gilchrist. Although Cookie played for the Broncos some 50 years ago, Sacco’s praise of Gilchrist is still high, calling him, “by far the greatest Denver fullback and one of the greatest players that many have never heard of.”
Todd Tobias's interest in the American Football League began in 1998, when he wrote my master's thesis about Sid Gillman. He created this site to educate and entertain football fans with the stories of the American Football League, 1960-1969. You can follow Todd and get more AFL history on Twitter @TalesfromtheAFL.
