Inside The Bills

2 former Bills college HOF’ers

Bills Wall of Famer Darryl Talley isn’t the only former Bills player that was named to the 2012 College Football Hall of Fame induction class this week.

Former FB Bill Enyart (1969-1971) was also named as an inductee. Enyart was far lesser known than Talley to most Bills fans because he spent far less time with the club. A second-round pick of the Bills in 1969 (a round after O.J.) Enyart was selected to help block for the Heisman Trophy winner. Problem was Enyart was more of a ball carrier in his college career at Oregon State and had to learn blocking.

Two short seasons later he was traded to Oakland where they switched him to linebacker, but a knee injury brought a premature end to his career. Enyart had a stellar college career at Oregon State where he was part of the ‘Giant Killers’ team that toppled #1 USC, #2 UCLA and #2 Purdue in the 1967 season.
