Kelvin Fisher

Football ∙ Ambridge

When Kelvin Fisher had a particularly strong rushing game in an Arizona State victory as a junior, he was asked to go to the interview room for post-game comments. He would go, he said, on one condition: his entire offensive line had to be there as well.

That says volumes about the respect he received then and still has today as one of the key figures in the Buffalo Bills organization in the National Football League.

The Baden native had an impressive career at Ambridge as a running back and as a defensive back. A starter all three years, Kelvin racked up 3,767 yards and scored 51 touchdowns for his scholastic career. In one particular game, he ran for 300 yards in just 12 attempts, including 92- and 94-yard touchdown romps. So good was his all-around play, Kelvin was named Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Player of the Year as a senior.

At Arizona State, Kelvin continued to excel. A starter for 33 consecutive games despite playing with some neck injuries, he was the ultimate team player. Moved to fullback, Kelvin became an exceptional blocker. He still managed to gain 1,763 yards in his career, with an additional 797 yards gained as a receiver. Twice named a team captain, his highlights included being named MVP of the 1990 Coca Cola Bowl, and being named All-PAC 10 as a senior in 1991. He was also the first ASU fullback to eclipse 1,500 rushing and 500 receiving yards.

Kelvin graduated with a degree in Social Work and had a short stint in the NFL as a player for the Jets in 1992 and with the Cardinals in 1993. Following that, he worked in his field of study until 1999. He returned to ASU and spent one year as a liaison between the Sun Devils' student-athletes, coaches, professors, and academic counselors.

In 2000, Kelvin took a job as a scout in the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. He scouted and helped stock the roster with players who won two Super Bowls and were playoff participants in eight of 13 seasons. That got the notice of the Bills, who hired him in 2013 to oversee their college scouting evaluation process.

With his track history of success in football, great results are sure to follow.

Kelvin and his wife Angela reside in Arizona. They have two children, Kelvin Jr., and Kailie.
