Dawson ranks among the elite forward passers of all time with an 82.56 rating compiled over 19 seasons of pro play.
Len found his niche with the Dallas Texans of the AFL as he led them to their first AFL Championship victory.
The Texans became the Kansas City Chiefs in 1963, where Dawson led the Chiefs to titles in both 1966 and 1969 that led to his participation in Super Bowls I and IV.
Dawson connected on 12 of 17 passes for 142 yards in the 23-7 upset of the Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl IV.
During his career, Dawson completed 2,136 of 3,741 passes for 28,711 yards and 239 touchdowns. He also rushed for 1,293 yards before retiring after the 1975 season.
Noted for his calm, poised approach to every situation, the 6-0, 190-pound Dawson was often lauded by his coach, Hank Stram, as "the most accurate passer in pro football."
Len was selected to play in six AFL All-Star games and the 1972 AFC-NFC Pro Bowl.
