The PFRA is launching a new initiative called the “Biography Project.” The intention of the project is to engage PFRA members to write biographies of former professional football players, head coaches, owners, founders, or commissioners from the pre-NFL, AAFC, and AFL/NFL.
Our initial focus will be on the 1960’s Buffalo Bills, but we are open to members writing biographies on any players, head coaches, owners, founders, or commissioners from any pre-NFL, AAFC, and AFL/NFL teams they are interested to do.
The PFRA website will store and display the biographies for members to utilize in their research or just for their pleasure. The project aligns well with the mission of the PFRA to continue to capture and disseminate the history of professional football.
The project will be overseen by a small Biography Committee that includes George Bozeka, Jeff Miller, and Greg Tranter.
We have developed guidelines for the biographies so there is some degree of consistency across all of them. See Authors’ Guidelines for PFRA Biography Project below. We will also utilize the PFRA Publications Author Guidelines (which are below) to guide our work.
We are excited to introduce this new project and encourage all members to participate. This will be an ongoing project.
If you are interested in writing a biography on a Buffalo Bills player, head coach, owner or founder from the AFL or any other professional football players, head coaches, owners, founders, or commissioners please contact Greg Tranter.
