1963 Profiles: Harold Olson and Ken Rice

Offensive Tackle
No. 74
"Harold Olson has improved in just about every game he's played at offensive tackle. He didn't take his job seriously as a rookie in '60, not knowing whether he was interested in a pro career. He has now advanced to the stage where he's among the top five at his position. He increased his blocking ability by taking off weight and by gaining an additional step in making his initial charge.
Harold was born in Asheville, North Carolina."

-Don Schiffer, Pro Football 1963

Offensive Tackle
No. 75
"As a 1961 rookie, Ken was named to the All-AFL team. The Bills were talking about him with all-time haloes when a broken leg put him out of commission for the entire 1962 season.
This big, mobile operator was a two-time All-American in college, fast enough to have played fullback on his high school team and tough enough to make the Bills want to play him on defense. In college, he used to outrun most of the backs- on either team."
