I'm pretty sure it's not him, but I remember when Paul Hornung did double duty kicking FG's/ extra points (and also running ! ) for the Packers, scoring a ton of points, plus he was a QB at Notre Dame.

Hornung never scored on a return in his NFL career.
Let me add...
This isn't about one of those wayyyyyyyyyyyyy back in the day players. Post....60's.

Damn that Avante he stumped me again
Come on man you're better at this than most. A cat who could do it all. Now just how many of those have there been? I just elimanated 98% of everyone. A guy who ran the ball, caught passes, had to kick a little, every once in awhile throwing a pass. They even had him returning kicks. Now how many guys have done all that?
Good guess, as we know when Wilkey (what his teammates called him) was at Angola State he set all kinds of records in rushing/receiving/kicking/tackling/passings/INTS/kick returns. Who can forget that game vs Parchman Farm. Over 700 yards total offense...before half time!!! What a shame he had to go and shoot a president, a lot of teams shied away from drafting him after that so as we know he ended up (signed on as a free agent) with the weak Sacramento Grasshoppers of the now defunct Continental League. Great guess
This guy played on a team with a great wide receiver and a great running back, he wasn't the star of the show, what he was was multi talented. He could do it all. Now how many teams have had a player like that?
I'll go a little further with there is a similiarity to Hornung and Gifford.
