1966 Profile: Paul Costa

Tight End
No. 82
Notre Dame
"If Paul Costa occasionally makes mistakes at tight end, don't shower him with your game program. Paul was an end in high school, but at Notre Dame he was knocked around from halfback to fullback to tackle. Last year, his first in pro ball, he all but pushed veteran Ernie Warlick out of a job.
Paul is a superb physical specimen at 6-5 and 256 pounds. You would think that would make him a slowpoke, but get this: he has run 50 yards in 5.6 seconds, then turned around and run another 50 in the identical time.
He's coming fast."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1966
