1967 Profile: Billy Shaw

Guard
No. 66
Georgia Tech
"Some people think the best one-on-one show in pro football occurs during the mid-week practice sessions of the Bills, when Billy Shaw knocks heads with defensive tackle Tom Sestak. But it's not so. Billy is only warming up for Sunday's game when, week after week, he goes about proving he's the best guard in the league.
The highest vote-getter in the annual All-AFL ratings, he is the complete guard who is equally proficient as a pass blocker and as an interference-runner. The Bills staff says there is no department in which he has a weakness.
A 6-2, 258-pounder from Georgia Tech, he joined the Bills in 1961, which is about as long as he has been an All-League star."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1967
