1964 Profile: Wray Carlton

Halfback
No. 30
Duke
"Sidelined by injuries virtually all of last season, Wray Carlton hopes to regain his running stride this year. He carried the ball only 29 times for 125 yards. His absence put pressure on Gilchrist, when Cookie was healthy, and put extra pressure on the passing attack since opposing teams could stack their defenses.
Out of Duke, he's going into his fifth AFL season.
With Gilchrist (240) and Carlton (230), the Bills own the biggest pair of running backs in all of pro football."

-Dave Anderson, Pro Football Handbook 1964
