Another from the sports file:

Marlin Briscoe, the first Black starting quarterback in the American Football League – with the Denver Broncos – passed Monday at age 76.

A native of Omaha, Neb., Briscoe was drafted in the 14th round in 1968 as a cornerback for the Broncos. He demanded to try at quarterback, and, as a backup, “The Magician” nearly rallied the Broncos to victory against the Boston Patriots on Sept. 29. He earned the historic first start a week later. He went on to a career that included stops in Buffalo, Miami (where he was on two Super Bowl championship teams), San Diego, Detroit and New England before his retirement in 1976.
