Shofner was far from a one hit wonder, the next two seasons after, he almost has back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons. In 1962, he finished second in receiving touchdowns with 12. He was an extremely consistent player.
Shofner’s personal best season was in 1963. He totaled 1,181 was his career best and it was ranked third overall in the NFL that same year. Shofner didn’t end off his career on a good note, he had a decline in his play due to injuries and illness. He retired in 1968 because the wear and tear of a life in football became too much for him. Shofner is also a member of the 1960s all decade team.
