    After starring at Michigan State Webster, the Oilers 1967 first round pick went on to win the AFL rookie of the year award. He was a unanimous selection for All-Pro in each of his first four seasons with the Oilers and was also named to the 1968 All-Pro team consisting of both AFL and NFL players. He was named defensive MVP of the 1969 AFL all-star game after intercepting two passes. I can't say that I remember him playing, but I've certainly read about him in a number of Oilers/football books. In his rookie year he was a star player on the team that lost to the Raiders in the AFL Championship game.
