1969 Profile: Ron McDole

Defensive End
No. 72
Nebraska
"Even on the coldest day of the year in Buffalo, local football fans can get heated up over Ron McDole being snubbed for the AFL All-Star team last season. According to the locals, he was the Bills' most consistent defensive player in '68, and turned in outstanding games virtually every week.
A bruising 6-2 1/2, 278-pounder who storms enemy quarterbacks with surprising swiftness, Ron took over at end in 1964 after failing in trials with the Cardinals, Oilers and Vikings. But he didn't begin to come into his own until the past couple of seasons. For years he suffered from migraine headaches. Now, you might say, he's become one to opposing clubs."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1969
