1974 Profile: Ray Jarvis

Wide Receiver
No. 80
Norfolk State
"Jarvis was acquired in a trade for a future draft choice from Atlanta just prior to the opening of training camp a year ago. He played sparingly as a wide receiver but was prominent on special teams. He caught one pass for 12 yards and had 84 yards on five kickoff returns.
A fifth round draft pick of the Falcons in 1971, Ray saw only limited service in two seasons in Atlanta. He backs up Bob Chandler at wide receiver for the Bills.
Jarvis was named to the Pittsburgh Courier All-America team in 1970 and was a three-time All-CIAA receiver at Norfolk State. He set school records for career pass receptions (104), receiving yardage (2,214) and touchdowns (24). Ray had his best college game as a freshman- six receptions, 196 yards and two touchdowns. Also a two-time second team All-Conference choice as a basketball guard, his Norfolk State major was chemistry."
