1972 Profile: Haven Moses

Split End
No. 25
San Diego State
"With the trade of Marlin Briscoe to Miami, Haven again becomes a prime- if not the prime- figure in the Bills' receiving department. After catching 42, 39 and again 39 passes in his first three big league seasons, he was limited to 23 last year as he shared the left-side job with rookie J.D. Hill. The earliest indication is that both Moses and Hill will be Shaw's batterymates this season.
Injuries also figured in Moses' subpar season, but he showed his old self after catching passes as he averaged 20.4 yards per reception. He scored a 73-yard touchdown.
Haven comes from sports-minded Compton, California, and played at pass-minded San Diego State, where he was a Little All-America. He also played in major postseason games, including the East-West, Senior, Coaches All-America and College All-Star. He was drafted No. 1 by the Bills and has been a starter ever since."
