Gino Cappelletti was born March 26, 1934 and is a former American collegiate and Professional Football player. He played at the University of Minnesota, and was a star in the American Football League for the Boston Patriots. He was the 1964 American Football League Most Valuable Player, a member of the Patriots Hall of Fame and of their All-1960s Team, the American Football League Hall of Fame, and a present announcer for the radio broadcasts of the Patriots' games.
Cappelletti was the American Football League's Most Valuable Player in 1964, and a five-time AFL All-Star. He is one of only twenty players who were in the American Football League for its entire ten-year existence, and one of three who played in every game their teams played in the AFL. He was the 2nd AFL Player to have 3 interceptions (of Tom Flores) in a regular season game. He had a 37 yard kickoff return in the Patriots 37-21 loss to the Houston Oilers on 12-18-60. He completed a 2 point pass to "Cowboy" Jim Crawford in the Patriots 35-0 shutout of the Los Angeles Chargers on 10-08-60. Gino completed a 27 yard fake field goal touchdown pass to Larry Garron in the Patriots 37-30 loss to the New York Titans on 10-01-61. He ran for three 2 point conversions and caught a pass for a 2 point conversion as well.
Cappelletti ran from the backfield for a 2 yard gain in the Patriots 41-10 loss to the Oakland Raiders on 10-06-68. He advanced a lateral from Jim Colclough (who had just caught a 37 yard pass) 14 yards before lateraling the ball to Ron Burton who advanced it another 7 yards in the Patriots 43-43 tie with the Oakland Raiders at Fenway Park on 10-16-64. He ran for a 4 yard gain on a wide receiver reverse in the Patriots 12-7 win over the Denver Broncos at Fenway Park on 11-20-64.
Cappelletti caught a pass for a 2 point conversion and scored 24 points in the Patriots 36-28 win over the 1964 AFL Champion Buffalo Bills on 11-15-64. Gino scored 21 points in their 33-28 win over the 1963 AFL Champion San Diego Chargers on 09-20-64. He scored 18 points or more in a game 10 times and scored at least 20 points in a game 8 times. He set the AFL record by scoring 28 points in a game in the Patriots 42-14 rout of the Houston Oilers on 12-18-65.
He averaged 9.5 points per game over a 6-year period. (The Patriots record was 47-29-8 over these 6 seasons) No other Professional Football player has averaged more points per game over a 6-year period; and he averaged 7.5 points per game over an 11-year period, while no other player has averaged more points per game over an 11-year period. Cappelletti accounted for at least 34% of his teams total points scored over an 8-year period. No other Professional Football player has done that.
Cappelletti is tied with Lance Alworth for the most career points scored in AFL All Star Games, and is the only player in Professional Football history to run for a 2-point conversion, throw a pass for a 2-point conversion, catch a pass, intercept a pass and return a punt and a kickoff in the same season.
He kicked 6 field goals (without a miss) in the Patriots 39-10 rout of the Denver Broncos on 10-04-64. He was 1 of only 2 AFL kickers to kick at least 4 field goals in a game for 3 consecutive games. He kicked the longest field goal in the AFL in consecutive seasons. He kicked 12 field goals with less than 30 seconds to go in the 1st half and kicked 4 game winning field goals and 1 game tying field goal. He led the AFL with the best field goal percentage in 1965.
Gino Cappelletti is the All-Time Points leader in AFL history.
One of his three sons-in-law is ex-Boston College and Chicago Bears standout Tom Waddle.
In 1984, Cappelletti was inducted into the National Italian American Sports Hall of Fame. In spite of his star quality, his numerous records, his all-around skills and his uniqueness, like other worthy American Football League players he is still continually passed over by the selectors for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
