Professional Football Player. He was a halfback and defensive back for three seasons (1946 to 1948) in the All-America Football Conference and National Football League, with the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills, Chicago Rockets and Chicago Bears. He was a member of the 1946 AAFC Champion Browns team and shared the field with hall of fame teammates Otto Graham, Marion Motley and Bill Willis.

During a game in 1948, Evans recovered 2 fumbles and returned them both for touchdowns. In 22 career regular season AAFC and NFL games, Evans had 49 rushes for 166 yards, with 1 touchdown and 7 receptions, for 89 yards and 1 touchdown. He died from bone cancer. (bio by: C.S.)
