1975 World Football League Most Valuable Player

The World Football League ceased operations on October 22, 1975. The league never named the MVP award winner for 1975. Anthony Davis of the Southern California Sun was on his way to a record breaking year during his rookie season. Davis was never named Player of the Week during 1975 campaign even though he lead the WFL in rushing and scoring most of the year. Davis rushed for a hundred yards or more in eight games during the '75 season, a WFL record. More then likely A.D. would have been named the World Football League's Most Valuable Player. Tommy Reamon owned the WFL rushing record with 1576 yards and Ed Marshall held the scoring record with 144 points. Both records were set during the 1974 WFL season. After week twelve, Anthony Davis was well in reach of both records. The league folded with six weeks left in the World Football League's 1975 regular season. Below are stats for Anthony Davis during his rookie season with the Southern California Sun.
