As a pro sports entrepreneur, Lamar Hunt changed forever the structure of pro football. He founded the American Football League in 1960, and his Dallas Texans were among the league's eight franchises. After winning the AFL title in 1962, the Texans moved and became the Kansas City Chiefs. In 1966, Hunt was one of the principal architects of the AFL-NFL merger. He also gave the Super Bowl its name and, coincidentally, his Chiefs played in the first one on Jan. 15, 1967. Hunt has served as a president of the AFC since its inception in 1970, and its championship trophy was named in his honor. In 1967 Hunt, along with Dave Dixon and Al G. Hill Jr., formed the World Championship Tennis tour (WCT). That same year Hunt also invested in the Dallas Tornado Soccer Club in the NASL. He was an original investor in Major League Soccer and part owner of the Kansas City Wizards. Hunt is a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame (1972), International Tennis Hall of Fame (1993), and the National Soccer Hall of Fame (1982). He was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1984.
