1974 Profile: Pete Van Valkenberg

Running Back
No. 36
Brigham Young
"Van Valkenberg came to the Bills from the Saints just prior to the season opener in 1973 and appeared in 13 games both as a running back and a special teams performer. He carried twice from scrimmage for 20 yards and caught a pass for seven yards. A sturdy, slashing runner, Pete was New Orleans' third round draft choice in 1973.
Pete was an All-Rockies running back for Brigham Young in 1972 and set eight school records including most points and touchdowns. He rushed for 2,392 yards in his varsity career- better than half that total during his senior season. The BYU football captain, Pete played in the Blue-Gray and Senior Bowl games."
