1977 Profile: Elbert Dubenion

College Scout
"The Bills' career leader in every pass receiving category is Elbert 'Golden Wheels' Dubenion, one of the most popular players ever to wear a Buffalo uniform. Dubenion, a member of the 1960 club, retired as a player midway through the 1968 season to accept a full-time position with the scouting department. He was the last remaining member of the original Bills.
In his eight seasons as a player, Dubenion caught 296 passes for 5,304 yards and 35 touchdowns. All are Buffalo lifetime highs as are his marks of touchdown receptions in five consecutive games and pass receptions in 42 straight appearances. Duby is third in the all-time standings in Bills' career scoring but ranks as the club's leader in touchdowns with 39.
A Little All-America at Bluffton College in 1958, Dubenion set a school record with 53 touchdowns in his four varsity seasons. He signed with the Browns in 1959 but was injured at the College All-Star camp. He was an instant success with the fledgling Bills in 1960, winning MVP honors his first season."
