1971 Profile: Butch Byrd

Cornerback
No. 42
Boston University
"The Bills' all-time interception leader with 40 thefts in his seven-year career (he added four last season), George (Butch) Byrd has started every game for Buffalo since he was drafted fourth in 1964.
A hard hitter and durable performer, the six-foot, 196-pound cornerback can match opposing wide receivers in both size and speed. In his rookie season he ran his first interception back for a 72-yard touchdown.
At Boston U., Butch was the team's rushing leader in both his junior and senior seasons."

-Brenda Zanger, Pro Football 1971
