"John is the current holder of all Bills career place kicking records. Last year he set Bills career marks for total points (288), total field goals (65) and PATs (93). John ranked third in AFC scoring in 1974 with 82 points and earned UPI All-AFC second team honors.
He has led the Bills in scoring the past three years, leading in 1973 with 90 points and in 1972 with 77. Leypoldt tied the Buffalo record with a 52-yard field goal in 1973.
Leypoldt joined the Bills as a free agent and has no college football experience. He played on a semi-pro level with Annapolis (later Virginia) Sailors in 1965-66. He was a kicker for his service football team during two years of Army duty in Germany.
John was working for Washington Gas Light Company at the time he won a Bills tryout. An avid and skilled pool player who likes hunting, fishing and golf, he started his own restaurant business this summer."
