1974 Profile: Dave Washington

No. 86
Alcorn A & M
"A starter at outside linebacker until he suffered a broken arm in the Kansas City game, Washington was placed on injured reserve for the remainder of the season. He appeared in four games for the Bills in 1972, playing both outside linebacker spots. He has good strength and range.
Dave was traded by Denver in April 1972 in exchange for linebacker Al Andrews. Denver's ninth round choice in 1970, he was both a tight end and a linebacker with the Broncos.
Washington saw action for Alcorn at three different positions- split end, tight end and defensive end. He caught 10 passes for better than 100 yards in one game as a freshman. Dave was used as a kickoff man.
Chemistry was his major at Alcorn with minors in math and education. Cabinet making is a hobby and he likes to read. Dave worked in the off-season in the labor relations division of an automobile company's local office."
