1970 Profile: Butch Byrd

No. 42
Boston University
"Butch, as this 6-0, 200-pound cornerback is usually called, led Buffalo in interceptions for the third time last year, stealing seven for 95 yards and a touchdown. He is the all-time club leader in interceptions, with 36 in his six seasons with the Bills. He has started every game in every season and has been on the All-Star team four times.
His size and determination also make him valuable at stopping runners when he's called upon to make like a linebacker on power sweeps. He's extremely physical in handling wide receivers; he's one of the few cornerbacks with the size that approximates that of his opponents."

-Brenda and Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1970
