Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Chris Mohr started playing football at the age of seven. Growing up, he played quarterback and defensive back while punting on the side. Mohr enjoyed being a quarterback but didn’t think he would have had the longevity in the NFL playing any other position besides punter.
Following a great college career as a punter at Alabama, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Mohr in the 1989 NFL Draft. Mohr spent his rookie season with the Bucs before suiting up for the Montreal Machine during the inaugural 1990 World League of American Football season, leading the league in punting. He then spent the next ten seasons with the Buffalo Bills, a franchise where he enjoyed some of his most memorable moments in the league.
