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.

    For those of you who may remember the great “Trip” Frank Tripuka who led the early Broncos for three years at QB. Frank lives here in NJ and is now 85 and in poor health. I tried to do an interview with Frank but he suffers from Alzhiemers disease and can not carry a conversation for too long. I am in the process of having him sign the brown 1960 Broncos helmet and the 62 helmet of mine. Franks contribution to the AFL was monumental in the formation of the leagues early years.

      Frank Tripuka is a post WWII American Icon from the world of sport. I urge any that read this, search lapl.com photos key word Frank Tripucka football: 1948 Spritual Bouquet for Frank Tripucka 8 with a cake in Good Sam Wilshire…tells it all.
