"Bills' coaches are raving about Tom Sestak, the Gonzalez (Texas) gladiator who proved that a rookie could win a starting job at defensive tackle. His desire was so intense that he was the most coachable among first-year prospects at the '62 camp. Tom came along so quickly during the season that he gained honors on the All-AFL second team.
He was a low 17th in the draft and was scarcely considered a prime prospect."
-Don Schiffer, Pro Football 1963
