Hall of Fame Sports Journalist. He will be remembered for his coverage of the Buffalo Bills from 1960 until 2001 as a columnist mostly with the Buffalo News. He cut his teeth in the industry as a copy boy with the Courier Express in 1951 and after attending Canisius College, he served with the United States Army for two years as a message decoder. He returned to the Courier in 1953 and landed a position in the sports department as a reporter. Felser's career took off in 1960 with the formation of the American Football League and he began a lengthy association with the Buffalo Bills. Additionally, he earned national prominence with his regular columns with the Sporting News. During the course of his career, he covered the Bills' championship years of 1964 and 1965 in addition to their four consecutive appearances in the Super Bowl (1991 to 1994). Along with fellow journalist Will McDonough whom covered the Patriots with the Boston Globe, Felser played a significant role in bringing creditability to the AFL. He was a strong voice for former AFL players whom deserved entry into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. His own body of work was acknowledged by the Pro Football Hall of Fame as he was recipient of the Dick McCann Memorial Award in 1984. Felser had the distinction of covering every Super Bowl from the game's inception in 1967 until the year of his death. He retired as a regular columnist in 2001 but remained as a contributor until 2012. He died following a brief illness. (bio by: C.S.)
