Marv Levy, Buffalo Bills

Another outstanding coach I got to know was Marv Levy at the Buffalo Bills whose hero happened to be Winston Churchill.  He remembered Winston’s heroic speeches in 1940 and 1941.

I sent Marv and Fran photographs and information about Blenheim Palace where Winston Churchill was born and as you can read at the bottom of the first page I offered to be their guide if they ever visited England although at the age of almost 92 that is now unlikely to happen.  Marv Levy to me was a gentleman who benefitted and enhanced the game of football and the young men who played it every day of his coaching life.
