"Okoniewski spent the final nine weeks of last fall on the Buffalo inactive list. Four of his five appearances were as a starter at defensive tackle. He's extremely strong and hard working.
Steve was obtained from Atlanta on waivers early in the fall of 1972 and saw service in two games his first year with the Bills. The Falcons 2B draft selection in 1972, he has played both offensive and defensive tackle.
Okoniewski was a two-time All-Big Sky offensive tackle at Montana. He played briefly at the University of Washington before transferring and was a junior college All-America at Everett (WA) JC. Steve participated in the Coaches All-America and College All-Star games.
A business major at Montana, Steve would like to pursue a coaching career after his playing days. Fishing is one of his hobbies."
