Bill Demory (born December 1, 1950) is a retired American football quarterback.

Football career[edit]

Demory played for the University of Arizona Wildcats and for the New York Jets of the NFL,[1] for whom he started three games in weeks 5-7 of the 1974 season.[2] In Demory's three starts, the Jets beat the New England Patriots (though Demory was only 1 for 7 on passing, and was responsible for none of the Jets' 9 points)[3] and lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos.

Later life[edit]

After football, Demory went to graduate school, receiving an M.B.A. from the University of Iowa and an M.A. in Economics and Entrepreneurship for Educators from the University of Delaware.[4] He is currently a professor of economics at Central Arizona College.[2]
