Concatenated thematic anagrams


Question

I'll give you the anagrams for a group of seven athletes who share

an achievement that is unique in the history of their sport.

They all play the same sport, and no one else has achieved what

each of them has achieved.

To make things interesting, anagrams of their teams are tacked on.

But the boundary that separates the two anagrams is not given.

The player and team anagrams divide on word boundaries,

and the words from the two anagrams are not mixed together.

Altho ... that would be the next level of fun, wouldn't it?

An example might help explain.

One of the players might be Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees.

His anagram might read like this:

Rig Our Axle Zed / Sneaky Key Owner

Where Rig Our Axle Zed is for Alex Rodriguez

and Sneaky Key Owner is for Hank Steinbrenner.

Uh, no, it's for New York Yankees. Sorry, Hank. [not!]

But I won't give you the "/" - that's part of the puzzle.

I'll just give you Rig Our Axle Zed Sneaky Key Owner

You break it up into two anagrams [on word boundaries] and solve each.

If this isn't clear, post a question. [As if you wouldn't. ]

Here are the anagrams.

Give me the athletes' names and teams, and figure out their unique achievement.

Good luck!

HA! It came to me all of a sudden after getting two names. Very, very nice. Two of my favorite things combined. B))

I love football and puzzles. Being an ex-linebacker (only junior college), Defensive Superbowl MVP's are near and dear to my heart.
