1969 Profile: Al Bemiller

No. 50
"It has probably escaped the notice of most people, but Al Bemiller has started every Bills' game since 1961. That adds up to 112 regular season games.
Of course, anyone following Al's career knows he couldn't always be found in the same place. A versatile type, he has played both tackle positions, as well as center, during his eight years in the pros. At 6-3 and 246 pounds, he's big enough to play anywhere on the offensive side.
An All-East star with Syracuse University, Al is also superstitious - whether he's playing center or tackle, he always has a towel tucked in the back of his football pants."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1969
