Gino Cappelletti is perhaps the most recognized figure in Patriots history. A versatile player, Cappelletti played wide receiver and kicker for the Patriots from 1960-70 and was the Patriots’ all-time leading scorer until 2005. He led the American Football League in scoring five times and holds two of the top five scoring seasons in league history – 147 points in 1961 and 155 points in 1964. The 1964 AFL Most Valuable Player, Cappelletti was voted an AFL All-Star five times. Cappelletti is still third on the Patriots all-time points list with 1,130 and remains among the top ten receivers in Patriots history. After his playing career ended, Cappelletti moved into the broadcast booth with his longtime partner Gil Santos. For the better part of the past quarter century, Santos and Cappelletti have been the voices of the Patriots for millions of New England football fans. In 1992, Cappelletti was inducted in the Patriots Hall of Fame.
