After starting on the special teams as a rookie from McNeese State five seasons ago, 'Gomer' Guidry worked his way into a starting linebacker position on the strong side. Then, midway though the 1969 season, he was injured. But the 6-2, 233-pounder is back in his usual spot, banging heads with runners and harassing pass receivers. He has the ability to cover backs deep and is becoming one of the team leaders.
He was drafted originally as a tight end."
