Errol Denis Mann (June 27, 1941 – April 11, 2013) was an American football placekicker who played in the National Football League from 1968-1978. He was a member of the Oakland Raiders' Super Bowl XI winning team. When attempting kicks, he used the straight-on style which is now almost never used by placekickers.

Professional career

In 1970, Errol Mann led the NFL in extra points attempted and extra points scored being a perfect 41 of 41 on extra points.[1] In 1976, he played for both the Lions and the Raiders, but made only 8 of 22 field goals in the regular season.[2] Then in Super Bowl XI at the end of the season he made two Field Goals including one from 40 yards to help the Raiders become Super Bowl Champions for the first time in franchise history. However, he also missed a 29-yard field goal and two extra point attempts. The following season, 1977, he had arguably the best season of his career leading the NFL in extra points attempted with 42, extra points made with 39 and he also led the NFL in points scored with 99.[1]
