Marlin Briscoe American Football Quarterback

Marlin Oliver (Marlin the Magician) Briscoe (born September 10, 1945 in Oakland, California) is a former American collegiate and Professional Football wide receiver/quarterback who played professionally for nine years. Before being drafted by the American Football League's Denver Broncos in the 1968 Common Draft, Briscoe played high school football at Omaha South High School and college football at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Briscoe was 5-foot-10 and 177 pounds when the AFL's Broncos took him in the 14th-round of the 1968 draft. He was eighth on the Broncos' QB depth chart in training camp. On September 29, 1968, starter Steve Tensi suffered a broken collarbone, and backup Joe DiVito was spotty. Head coach Lou Saban summoned Briscoe from the sidelines in the fourth quarter against the Boston Patriots. Briscoe's first play was a 22-yard completion. On his second series he orchestrated an 80-yard touchdown drive. He completed a 21-yard pass and ran for 38 more himself, carrying it the last 12 yards for the score.
