I just received this from Angelo Coniglio of rememberthe AFL.com--- sad news about Cookie!
Many of you remember Cookie was the first great Bills running back in the early 60's. He was the AFL's version of the great Jimmy Brown.
AFL Fans and former players:
I have word from Chris Garbarino that AFL great Cookie Gilchrist is in an assisted living facility with stage four cancer. If you would like to contact Cookie, you can do it through Chris at email@example.com
Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
