1962 Richie Lucas and Fred Brown Profiles

No. 11
Penn State
"Lucas played three positions last season after a disappointing rookie year in which he was handicapped by injuries. He was used as a quarterback, flanker and defensive halfback. Overall, Lucas completed 20 of 50 passes for a 40% completion average, 262 yards and two touchdowns.
He was outstanding in the Bills' 41-13 victory over New York on September 17, throwing a pair of touchdown passes and calling an excellent selection of plays as the Bills ran up their highest point total in two years. In his defensive effort, he intercepted two passes against Houston."

No. 46
"Only a torn knee ligament prevented Fred Brown, the Atlanta antelope, from pacing all Bill runners in 1961. A slashing smasher who moves off and inside tackle with the power of a fullback, he wheeled for 192 yards on 53 carries and also turned in the longest kickoff return (93 yards) of the year.
He's considered the best running back from the University of Georgia since Charlie Trippi."

-Don Schiffer, 1962 Pro Football Handbook
