1967 Profile: Keith Lincoln

Halfback
No. 20
Washington State
"Although he was beginning to feel superfluous in San Diego, Keith Lincoln was a little shook up when he got news of his trade to Buffalo. He didn't like feeling unwanted, but the open-arms reception he received in Buffalo quickly reassured him.
One of the league's super-backs since 1962, he has the great versatility to play either halfback or fullback, is a strong, tough blocker, can catch passes and can run strong enough to break tackles. He was held to 58 carries for 214 yards and one touchdown last year, but this is a runner who pounded out more than 800 yards in 1963.
Pulled hamstring muscles have cut into his effectiveness the last couple of seasons, but the 6-1, 212-pounder expects to be running at full speed again in 1967."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1967
