1965 Profile: Wray Carlton

Halfback
No. 30
Duke
"At 220 pounds, Wray Carlton is one of the biggest halfbacks in football, and he perfectly rounds out the Bills' 'Elephant Backfield.'
Wray comes off a disappointing season in 1964 in which he missed all but the last three games through injury. He returned just in time, however, to gain 114 important rushing yards and supply vital blocking muscle ahead of Cookie Gilchrist.
Carlton, a seven-year veteran in the pros, is not a fast man but he picks his holes well, drives hard and is rated a better-than-average pass receiver."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1965
