Buffalo News: Allen's Goal is Super Bowl for Buffalo (5th part of 5)

FIREBAUGH, Calif. – Few people have experienced Wyoming football like Jerry Hill has. He's from there, still lives there, played for the university and, at 78, still attends some games at War Memorial Stadium.

He was a Baltimore Colts fullback until 1970, winning a Super Bowl. Since he retired, only four players from the University of Wyoming logged more NFL games.

So when is the last time Hill remembers Wyoming football being as exciting as it was the past two years with Josh Allen at quarterback?

"Well," Hill replied, "I thought Jimmy Walden was pretty entertaining."

Walden was Wyoming's quarterback in 1958 and 1959.

That is the program-jolting panache Allen brought to the Wyoming Cowboys.

The Buffalo Bills last month made Allen the highest Wyoming draft choice in NFL history.

"When you go out and do what he did in his career at Wyoming, yes, there were people who believed in him," Chicago Bears receiver and favorite Wyoming target Tanner Gentry said.

"But I guarantee there were more people who didn't."
