Wilmer Fowler Remembers the 1960 Buffalo Bills

Video interviews of men who played in the inaugural AFL season are not easy to come by.  Many of the guys have passed on, others are have faded into the woodwork.  Most of what is available is focuses on the handful of men who eventually became superstars – Jack Kemp, Ron Mix, George Blanda, Jim Otto, etc.

The video above features Wilmer Fowler, who played running back for the Buffalo Bills for just 13 games in 1960 & 1961, rushing for 372 yards and one touchdown on 94 career attempts.

He created this site to educate and entertain football fans with the stories of the American Football League, 1960-1969. You can follow Todd and get more AFL history on Twitter @TalesfromtheAFL.
