Meyer, Tennell make All-AFL first-team offense

I wrote about the Spokane-Arizona AFL rivalry in today's paper. Here's the article on one of the AFL's best rivalries.

The league continues to announce All-AFL honors. On Wednesday, the first- and second-team offense was released and Spokane’s Erik Meyer and Adron Tennell made first-team.

Meyer passed for 4,667 yards and 112 touchdowns, both franchise records. He led the AFL in pass efficiency (123.6) and completion percentage (68.2).

Tennell led the league in scoring with 56 touchdowns (49 receiving) by a wide margin. He finished the regular season with 156 receptions for 1,792 yards.

Philadelphia had four first-team offense selections. Arizona, which entertains Spokane for the National Conference championship on Saturday in Phoenix, had one first-team selection and five on the second team.

Combining offensive and defensive selections, Spokane had three players honored, behind Arizona (8), Philadelphia (7), San Jose (6), Jacksonville (4) and San Antonio (4). Arizona (16-3) and Spokane (15-4) had the AFL's best records and were ranked 1-2, or vice versa, in the coaches poll/power rankings. In other words, the All-AFL lists don't seem to match Spokane's regular-season accomplishments.

Here's a link to the All-AFL Offense and All-AFL Defense. I also cut-and-paste the All-AFL offense below.
