In Memoriam – Jack Kemp

Former congressman and the first Chargers QB Jack Kemp passed away Saturday evening.  He was 73.

Kemp’s first start – the first game in Chargers’ history – was a W as he led the Chargers to a 21-20 win vs. the Dallas Texans.  He played for the Chargers from 1960-1962 and had a 22-6 record as a starter.  In 1962, he went to Buffalo where he enjoyed 8 seasons as the Bills’ QB and was the AFL MVP in 1965, the same year the Bills won the AFL title, in addition to wining the AFL Championship the prior year.

My condolences to his friends and family.
