    And now I'm down the rabbit hole, looking at Toni Fritsch, who may be the only person to play on a Super Bowl-winning team and beat England at Wembley as a member of the Austrian National soccer team.

    Name the only person to play in five professional football leagues? (CFL, AFL, NFl, WFL and USFL)

    Was there ever an answer to this?

    I’ll guess Zenon Andruszyshin (sp?) the kicker?

    This ex-NFL receiver still holds his school's record for longest TD pass thrown, a 99-yard play from scrimmage. Name him.

    To clarify, he was a college qb who became an nfl wide receiver? Or was he a receiver who just happened to throw long one time and then went to the nfl?

    He was recruited as a high school quarterback, played it in college before moving to receiver. He was drafted into the NFL as a receiver.

    P.S.: The pass is still an NCAA record, which has been tied.

    I knew it had to be a very narrow window of opportunity. The AFL's last season was 1969. The USFL's first was 1983. So somebody had to be important enough to keep around for 14 seasons, but well-traveled. Great question.

    Wow! Just found his Wikipedia page. Drafted by the Bengals, he also played for the Bills, Detroit Wheels, Chicago Winds and Philadelphia Bell of the WFL, then the Chiefs, then to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Edmonton Eskimos, where he won two Grey Cups and was named the CFL's most outstanding offensive lineman twice. Then landed with the Washington Federals, L.A. Express and Michigan Panthers. And probably has a drawer-full of bounced checks.

    That's a hell of a resume.
