1974 Profile: Bob Chandler

Wide Receiver
No. 81
"Buffalo's leading receiver last fall, Chandler caught 30 passes for 427 yards and three touchdowns, two of them against the New England Patriots on December 9. He had his best afternoon of 1973 in Baltimore with five receptions for 97 yards including a 37-yard touchdown catch that tied the game.
Chandler has great speed and outstanding hands and is adept at finding the open space and catching in a crowd. An extremely steady performer, he's also a determined blocker. Used as a punt returner in 1973, Bob is the holder on conversions and field goal tries.
Bob was captain and an All-Pacific Eight flanker for the USC Trojans and was Player of the Game in Southern California's 1970 Rose Bowl victory over Michigan. He led USC in pass receptions in each of his three varsity seasons and played in the East-West Shrine game. Bob caught eight passes for 115 yards and one touchdown in his first game as a USC starter. A member of the USC track team, his events were the long jump, high jump and triple jump.
He's active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. A finance major at USC with a minor in physical education, Bob has worked as a helper in the California oil fields and as an extra in motion pictures. Novels, movies and golf are among his favorite spare time pursuits."
