1968 Profile: Keith Lincoln

Halfback
No. 20
Washington State
"In his early years with the San Diego Chargers, Keith Lincoln was the league's elite running back, a two-time All-AFL selection. Then injuries marred his effectiveness for a couple of seasons, and he was finally traded to the Bills in 1967.
But the new environment and improved health enabled him to climb right back up among the top rushers, as he finished with 601 yards on 159 carries for a 3.8 average and four touchdowns. The solidly built 6-1, 215-pounder also caught 41 passes for 558 yards and five more TD's - one of them coming on a 60-yard play.
This is a guy who knows where the goal line is, which explains why he's in the top ten of all-time AFL rushers."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1968
