Larry Felser (born April 5, 1933 in Buffalo, New York, died April 24, 2013 in Amherst, New York) was a sports columnist and writer for the Buffalo Courier-Express and later, The Buffalo Evening News, where he was a football beat writer, a columnist, and rose to the position of Sports Editor. Felser also wrote a column for The Sporting News.

Felser covered every one of the first 37 Super Bowls, until his retirement, and was an impassioned advocate for American Football League players nominated to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, for which he served on the board of selectors. In 1984, he was the youngest writer ever to receive the Dick McCann Memorial Award for long and distinguished reporting of Professional Football. In 2000, he was inducted into the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame.

Felser and NFL Films head Steven Sabol were among only a few people to have been present at every Super Bowl game at the time of their respective deaths.
