1975 Profile: Bruce Jarvis

No. 51
"His slow recovery from knee surgery limited Bruce to one appearance in 1974 (at Green Bay). He held down the starting center position for most of the 1973 season until a knee injury in practice before the Cincinnati game sidelined him for the remainder of the year. He underwent knee surgery. Bruce [also] missed all but three games of the 1972 season with a knee injury.
He's a solid offensive performer on running and passing plays. He was a third round draft choice in 1971 and first won a regular job as a rookie.
Jarvis was an honorable All-America as a center for Coach Jim Owens' Huskies, and a second-team All-Coast selection. He was voted Washington's Offensive Lineman of the Year and was elected to play in the annual Hula Bowl game. Bruce was a college teammate of Bills linebacker Bo Cornell.
Bruce earned his B.A. degree in finance and economics during the off-season. He has an interest in a Buffalo area restaurant- 'The Outside Inn.'"
