Abner Haynes was a key player for the Dallas Texans and eventually the Kansas City Chiefs.  Haynes still holds the Chiefs franchise record for touchdowns in a single game (5).  Abner Haynes is a cousin of Sly Stone of Sly and The Family Stone.

 In the 1962 AFL Championship Game, Haynes made what could have been a costly error at the start of overtime. Hank Stram, aware of the strong winds at Jeppesen Stadium, instructed Abner Haynes, should the Texans win the coin toss, to choose the side of the field facing the stadium clock, which would give the Texans the wind at their backs. (In professional American football, the team winning the coin toss can choose to kick off, receive the kickoff, or which end of the field to defend.)

The Texans won the coin toss. Haynes, figuring the Oilers would elect to receive (thereby making the Texans kick off) if the Texans opted to choose which goal to defend, told the referee, "We'll kick to the clock." However, by simply stating the words "We'll kick," Haynes had made the Texans kick off and allowed the Oilers, not the Texans, to choose which end zone to defend. The Texans saved Haynes from embarrassment by not allowing the Oilers to score in that first overtime, then won the game on Tommy Brooker's field goal 2 minutes and 54 seconds into the second overtime (when the teams switched goals).
