1966 Profile: Al Bemiller

Center
No. 50
Syracuse
"Al Bemiller is the swing man of the Buffalo offensive line this year. A congenital back injury may compel regular center Dave Behrman to quit the game. If so, the 6-3, 260-pound Bemiller will take his place. The switch will be no sweat for him. Al was a center on those famous Syracuse powerhouses of the late 1950's. The last couple of seasons, he has been playing right guard in order to make room for Behrman.
He's an outstanding blocker who gives the passer good protection, and is especially skilled at the finesse or 'influence' block, which takes more guile than beef."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1966
