Bills former kicker Pete Gogolak was announced as one of three inductees into the American Football Kicking Hall of Fame (scroll down).

Gogolak is being honored with other kicking pioneers like Ben Agajanian, the first kicking specialist and Ray Guy, the first punter ever drafted in the first round.

Gogolak joined the Bills right out of Cornell and became the first soccer style kicker in pro football. He’s also still the New York Giants all-time leading scorer (646 points).

The Kicking Hall of Fame inductees will be presented tonight at a ceremony in August, GA.
