1977 Profile: Tom Sherman

College Scout
"Former Penn State quarterback Tom Sherman, who played briefly for the Bills during the 1969 season, takes over the college scouting position left vacant by Stew Barber's promotion to assistant general manager. Sherman, 32, spent the 1976 season as starting quarterback for the CFL Calgary Stampeders.
As a Penn State senior, Sherman was one of the NCAA's total offense leaders and was voted MVP of the 1967 Gator Bowl. He was signed as a free agent by the Boston Patriots and started the Pats' final seven games of 1968, completing 90 passes for 1,199 yards and 12 touchdowns. Picked by the Bills on waivers late in 1969, he appeared in one game for Buffalo (San Diego) and threw a touchdown pass.
Sherman joined the ACFL Hartford Knights in 1970 after receiving his release from the Bills. He played four seasons in Hartford, helping the Knights to the 1972 ACFL championship. Signed by the WFL New York Stars in 1974, he spent two seasons in the World League, moving to Charlotte with the franchise before it finally folded."
