1974 Profile: Ted Koy

Safety-Tight End
No. 37
"One of the Bills' most versatile performers, Koy played four different positions last season- running back, tight end, linebacker and safety. He made his only start of 1973 at safety against Philadelphia. Ted is a valuable performer on special teams, a tough blocker with good speed and great determination.
Ted became a Bill six days before the start of the 1971 season, acquired from Oakland in exchange for a future draft choice. He was the Raiders' second round selection in 1970 and played in 14 games for Oakland as a rookie.
Koy was captain of Texas' 1969 National Championship team. An All-America and All-Southwest Conference running back, he made the All-America blocking team. Koy saw postseason action in the Cotton and Senior Bowls and was a member of the 1970 College All-Star squad.
Ted's undergraduate degree is in journalism and public relations and he is studying at the Texas A & M School of Veterinary Medicine in the off-season. He's active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
His brother, Ernie, played with the New York Giants from 1965-70, a sister, Margaret, is a former sportswriter for the Abilene Reporter-News, and his dad was a Texas All-America in football and baseball who later played professionally with the baseball Cardinals and Dodgers."
