Ernie Warlick (born July 21, 1932 in Washington, D.C.) was an American football tight end from North Carolina Central University and was a three time All-Canadian Football League player before joining the Buffalo Bills in 1962. He had an average of 17.2 yds/catch with the Bills, while the team earned three straight Eastern Division titles and two American Football League championships, with a 20.8 yds/catch average in 1964. When Billy Shaw and Dave Behrman were injured for the 1965 American Football League championship game, he helped bolster the Bills' offensive blocking in a double tight end offense. In that game, he also scored the first touchdown in the Bills' 23-0 victory over the San Diego Chargers, on an eighteen yard pass from Hall of Fame quarterback Jack Kemp.
He was selected to the American Football League All-Star Team in 1962, '63, '64, and '65. He was the first African-American sportscaster on Buffalo television, was elected to the Buffalo Broadcast Pioneers Hall of Fame in 1998, and received the Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Distinguished Service Award in 2000.
