It’s a sad day in Buffalo. A spokesman for the Bills confirmed today that Linda Bogdan, vice president and assistant director of college and pro scouting for the Bills has died. She was 61.
Bogdan, the daughter of owner Ralph C. Wilson Jr., had been battling cancer and was the only active female scout in the NFL. She was with the Bills for 23 years and acted as corporate VP for 15.
Football was in Bogdan’s blood. She played touch football with her father and his friends and accompanied him to countless games. When her father bought the Bills in 1960 she went on sporatic scouting assignments and was officially onboard in 1986 when she told her father she was tired of “too many 2-14 seasons.” (A girl after my own heart)
Besides her father, Bogdan is survived by her two sisters; Christy Wilson Hoffman and Edith Wilson.
In honor of Bogdan’s love and devotion to this great team, let’s make this a winning season, for her! Let’s go Buff-a-lo!
