1961 Profile: Elbert Dubenion

Flanker
No. 44
Bluffton
"The only other halfback who's as spectacular as Abner Haynes is Elbert Dubenion of the Buffalo Bills. He went to little Bluffton College and scored 53 touchdowns. He was supposed to be the 'sleeper' of the Browns in 1959, but a bad knee suffered in the College All-Star camp sidelined him for the year.
The Bills, who play him as flanker back, rate him the fastest man in the game. He scored six touchdowns on runs of 40 yards or more last season. With a year of experience, he might set the league on fire in 1961- just like Abner Haynes in 1960."
