1974 Profile: Bruce Jarvis

No. 51
"Jarvis held down the starting center position until injured in practice just prior to the Cincinnati game. He was sidelined for the remainder of the campaign and underwent off-season knee surgery.
A solid offensive performer on running and passing plays, Bruce missed all but three games of the 1972 season with a knee injury. He was a third round draft choice in 1971 and first won a regular job as a rookie.
Jarvis was an honorable All-America as a center for Coach Jim Owens' Huskies, and a second-team All-Coast selection. He was voted Washington's Offensive Lineman of the Year and was elected to play in the annual Hula Bowl game. Bruce was a college teammate of Bills linebacker Bo Cornell.
Bruce was a business administration major at Washington and got into the restaurant business in Buffalo during the off-season. His father is a surgeon, his brother an attorney. Skiing is his hobby."
