1975 Profile: Bob Chandler

Wide Receiver
No. 81
"Chandler was slowed by injuries last year. He caught only seven passes, well off his pace of the two previous seasons. He underwent off-season surgery to correct the injury problem. Chandler had five receptions against Houston and two, including one for a touchdown, at Miami.
He was Buffalo's leading receiver in 1973 with 30 catches for 427 yards and three touchdowns, two against the New England Patriots in Buffalo. His best afternoon of 1973 was in Baltimore where he made five receptions for 97 yards including a 37-yard scoring catch that tied the game.
Bob is a determined blocker and is adept at finding the open space and catching in a crowd. He has also been used as a punt returner and is the holder on conversions and field goal tries.
Captain and an All-Pacific Eight flanker for the USC Trojans, Bob was Player of the Game in Southern California's 1970 Rose Bowl victory over Michigan. He led USC in pass receptions in each of his three varsity seasons and played in the East-West Shrine game. Bob caught eight passes for 115 yards and one touchdown in his first game as a USC starter. A member of the USC track team, his events were the long jump, high jump and triple jump.
He's active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. A finance major at USC with a minor in physical education, Bob has worked as a helper in the California oil fields and as an extra in motion pictures. Novels, movies and golf are among his favorite spare time pursuits."
