1965 Profile: Daryle Lamonica

No. 12
Notre Dame
"When the Bills go their ball control game, Daryle Lamonica usually replaces Jackie Kemp at quarterback. Lamonica, a big fellow at 6-3 and 215 pounds, is a harder runner than Kemp and is a good rollout passer. Usually, he will sit on the bench while Kemp probes the rival defense, then come in and exploit its weaknesses. Daryle passed only 126 times last year, completing 55.
He played college ball at Notre Dame, and was the Most Valuable Player in the 1962 East-West Shrine Game."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1965

"Capable of throwing the long bomb, Daryle is considered one of the top quarterbacks in the AFL. Only the fact that All-Star Jack Kemp plays for Buffalo keeps Daryle from seeing more action.
Daryle passed for 349 yards in the 1962 East-West Shrine Game. The young man from Notre Dame holds the school record with four touchdowns in one game."

-1965 Topps No. 36
