Thomas Frederick Day ("Tippy") (August 20, 1935 — August 21, 2000) was an American collegiate and Professional Football player. A defensive end, he played college football at North Carolina A&T State University, and professionally in the American Football League for the Buffalo Bills and the San Diego Chargers. He was part of the Bills' defense which did not allow a rushing touchdown for 17 consecutive games over a portion of the 1964 and 1965 seasons, winning the American Football League Championship in both years. Day was an AFL All-Star in 1965.

Day said of winning the AFL championship, "Winning the championship is like making love to the most beautiful woman in the world."[1]
