"Foley was the regular left tackle on the Bills' record-setting offensive line. He was a starter in all 14 games and named to the AFC Pro Bowl squad. A consistent performer and an excellent pass blocker, Dave came to the Bills on waivers from the Jets just prior to the 1972 season and started 12 games his first year in Buffalo. He was a number one draft pick of the Jets in 1969 and a regular there in 1970. Dave injured a knee against Buffalo as a rookie and has had knee surgery.
Dave was an All-America and an All-Big Ten tackle on Ohio State's 1968 National Champions when the Buckeyes defeated USC, led by O.J. Simpson, in the 1969 Rose Bowl game. An Academic All-America choice, he won three OSU letters in track and played in the College All-Star Game against the New York Jets.
Foley earned his B.S. in industrial engineering and works as a life insurance agent during the off-season. His hobbies include handball, fishing and golf."
