Paul Lowe of Oregon State University played for the Los Angeles and San Diego Chargers from 1960 through 1968.  His blazing speed helped him gain nearly 5,000 yards, the Chargers' all-time best, as is his 4.89 yards-per-carry average.  He returned his first touch of the football in the American Football League for a 105 yard touchdown in the Chargers first-ever exhibition game, and had the Chargers' longest run from scrimmage with an 87-yard run in 1961.  Lowe was the American Football League MVP in 1963 with 1,121 yards rushing (14-game schedule), a two-time all-American Football League selection, and a halfback on the All-time All-AFL Team.  Lowe had the American Football League's all-time highest rushing average, at 4.9 yds/carry, and is one of only twenty players who were in the American Football League for its entire ten-year existence. He is a member of the American Football League Hall of Fame.
