1963 Profile: Jack Kemp

Quarterback
No. 15
Occidental
"Out for eight '62 games, Jackie Kemp finished brilliantly as a first-time Bill, clicking on 54 percent of his passes. His strength as a signal-caller is in his ability to 'check off' defenses, which means he's rapid at changing the play while calling the signals.
Kemp came from the Chargers after injuring a finger on his throwing hand. He was the AFL passing boss in '60 and No. 3 in '61, tossing the fastest ball in the circuit. Now 28, he had NFL trials with the Giants, Steelers and 49ers."

-Don Schiffer, Pro Football 1963
