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
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
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
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.
