"Since their formation in 1960, the Buffalo Bills have had only one trainer- Eddie Abramoski. An outstanding high school guard in his hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania, Abramoski went to Purdue University on a football scholarship. A back injury, which required surgery, wrote an early end to his playing career and led to an interest in becoming an athletic trainer.
Following graduation, Eddie landed his first training job at the United States Military Academy, West Point, New York. He later moved to the University of Detroit as head trainer. While in Detroit, he moonlighted as a trainer with the Lions. He struck up an acquaintance with Detroit assistant coach Buster Ramsey, who took Abe with him to Buffalo when he was named the first head coach of the Bills in 1960."
