Encyclopedia > Jerrel Wilson

Jerrel Wilson (1941-2005) was an American collegiate and professional football player. He was a center at the University of Southern Mississippi, and played running back early in his professional career, after being drafted by Kansas City of the American Football League in 1963. But he became an All-AFL punter for the Chiefs. He played more seasons than any player in team history. Wilson's booming punts earned him the media nickname "Thunderfoot", because he frequently got the Chiefs out of the shadow of their own goal posts. To friends, he was "Duck", a lover of the outdoors.
