1969 Profile: Billy Shaw

Guard
No. 66
Georgia Tech
"One AFL coach said of Billy Shaw, 'Even half-healthy, he's better than most.' It was high praise for the 6-2, 258-pound guard who has missed a lot of action over the past two seasons due to injury.
But when he's in there, he gives enemy tackles an all-out battle on every play. There probably isn't a better pulling guard in the league,and yet Billy, who drives himself to excel in every department, also provides solid protection for the passer.
He became a Bill in 1961 after being chosen in the second round of the draft. He played his college football at Georgia Tech."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1969
