1964 Profile: Pete Gogolak

Place Kicker
12th Round
Cornell
This well-spoken young man is an American success story. After leaving occupied Hungary with his family at the age of 14, Pete later achieved collegiate stardom as a kicker at Cornell. He set an Ivy League record of 44 consecutive points and a Cornell record with a 50-yard field goal.
Pete brings the new 'soccer-style' place kicking to pro football. The ball is kicked at a 45-degree angle with the instep of the foot. Coach Saban thinks Pete will add a new element of scoring to Buffalo's AFL title hopes.
