Theodore Thomas "Ted" Alflen is a former American football player. A defensive back and halfback, he played college football at Springfield College, and played professionally in the American Football League for the Denver Broncos in 1969 and in the Canadian Football League for the Montreal Alouettes in 1970. Alflen returned to the AFL to play with the New England Patriots in 1971, but suffered a knee injury returning a kickoff in the pre-season against the Minnesota Vikings. Nine weeks later he was released and retired due to numerous injuries. Alflen held Springfield College's record for most points scored in a game, 36 versus Tufts in 1968, a record which stood until 2006. Alflen's moment in the limelight came during his short stint with Montreal. Alouettes coach Sam Etcheverry had suspended running back Dennis Duncan and receiver Bob McCarthy for curfew violations. Alflen, who had been playing for the Long Island Bulldogs, was brought in just in time for the playoffs, and played only three games in his brief but noteworthy career as a Lark. During the first quarter of the 1970 Grey Cup game, the Alouettes were third-and-one at the Calgary Stampeders' ten-yard line.
