1976 Profile: Stew Barber

Talent Scout
"Former All-AFL tackle Stew Barber rejoined the Bills organization a year ago as a talent scout in the Player Personnel Department. The Bills' fourth round draft choice out of Penn State in 1961, Barber was also drafted by Dallas of the NFL in the third round. He elected Buffalo, and over the next nine seasons played in 112 consecutive regularly-scheduled games, was a five-time All-AFL selection and appeared in four AFL All-Star Games. Barber was a member of both of the Bills' AFL Championship teams.
An All-East tackle for the Nittany Lions, Barber played in the Liberty Bowl, the Blue-Grey, the College All-America and College All-Star games. He earned his college degree in economics and real estate. After a stint in private business and some part-time scouting duties for the Bills, Barber got into professional coaching with the New York Stars of the World Football League. He moved with the WFL franchise when it transferred to Charlotte before finally folding. Barber caught on with the WFL Chicago Wind in 1975 but left to accept a scouting position with the Bills."
