1972 Profile: Paul Guidry

Linebacker
No. 59
McNeese State
"A first-rage linebacker who has held down his job since 1968, with some time out for injury, Guidry replaced John Tracey as a starter after making a name for himself on special teams. He has made four interceptions, including one last season. Paul reached his peak in 1970 when he was accorded second-team All-AFC honors by United Press.
Guidry started college at Louisiana State but transferred to McNeese State where he starred as an all-conference tight end. Drafted eighth by the Bills in 1966, he has the speed, mobility and talent for snooping out opponents' plays.
Paul is nicknamed 'Gomer' because of his likeness to Jim Nabors of TV fame. He wants to coach someday."
