He reached Buffalo on waivers from the Jets just prior to the beginning of the 1972 season and was a starter in 12 games his first year with the Bills. Dave was a number one draft pick of the Jets in 1969 and a New York regular in 1970. He injured a knee against Buffalo as a rookie and has had knee surgery.
Dave was an All-America and All-Big Ten tackle on Ohio State's 1968 National Champions when the Buckeyes defeated USC, led by O.J. Simpson, in the 1969 Rose Bowl game. An Academic All-America choice, he played in the College All-Star Game against the New York Jets. He also won three OSU letters in track.
Dave earned his B.S. in industrial engineering and worked during the off-season as a life insurance agent. He donated his off-season speaking fees to the Springfield, Ohio YMCA for the purchase of a Nautilus machine. His hobbies include handball, fishing and golf."
