Max McGee caught the first touchdown pass in Super Bowl I (technically the first AFL-NFL World Championship) on January 15, 1967, as the Packers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10. He caught 2 touchdowns in that game and a reception that set up a touchdown in Super Bowl II the following year, which marked his final season in the NFL.

Has a punter ever scored a touchdown in football?

AnswerYes! Here is a listing of a few. Jerry Burch served double duty as a wide receiver and a punter for the 1961 Oakland Raiders and caught a touchdown while being a wide receiver. From 1962-1971, Gary Collins also served as a wide receiver and a punter, only he caught 70 touchdowns- still all as a wide receiver. Danny White was both a punter and a quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys from 1976 to 1984 (and was also strictly a quarterback from 1985 to 1988.) White threw 155 TD passes and scored 8 himself as a rusher.Hall of Famer Sammy Baugh, who played from 1938 to 1952, is best known as a quarterback and defensive back, but he was also an outstanding punter.If those don't count, in 1977 Tom Blanchard of the New Orleans Saints threw a 3 yard touchdown pass.

Who was the first person to score a touchdown in the Super Bowl?

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Max McGee caught a 37-yard touchdown pass from Bart Starr in the first quarter of Super Bowl I. McGee also caught a 13-yard touchdown pass from Game MVP Starr in the third quarter. The Packers of the National Football League defeated the Kansas City Chiefs of the American Football League, 35-10.

As a result, he spent Super Bowl eve partying and drinking. He was pressed into service when starting receiver Boyd Dowler was injured in the first quarter.
