January 21, 1959 - Lou Reale is 3rd UB player drafted in the 50's

Reale was raised in Middleport NY and graduated from Royalton-Hartland High School. He came to UB as a Fullback, but in his final 2 years, he switched to Center and excelled.

The 1958 UB Bulls won the Lambert cup behind Willie Evans who averaged 7.6 yards per carry during the season. Lou Reale was crucial to the running attack and as Co-Captain, Reale received the Lambart Trophy along with Nick Bottini on The Ed Sullivan Show. Reale was rewarded for his stellar play when he was drafted in the 25th round by the New York Giants.

Reale never played for the Giants, and enlisted in the US Army. In 1961 Reale was signed by the AFL's Buffalo Bills.
