"Green missed four starts last season due to an appendectomy. He was operated on after the game at New England and did not return to service until the Jet game at Shea Stadium. One of the Bills' most consistent offensive linemen, Green has been a starting Buffalo tackle for four seasons- longer than any player on the Bills' offensive line. He's one of the biggest men on the Buffalo roster and an outstanding blocker with excellent speed and mobility. Donnie was the unlikely receiver of a pass (for no yards) in the Miami game in Buffalo.
He was listed as an honorable mention on AP and UPI's 1970 college All-America teams, was captain of the Purdue squad as a senior and won an invitation to the American Bowl game in Tampa. Donnie once set a Boilermaker freshman record in the shot put with a throw of 49-7.
Donnie took a physical education course at Purdue and is interested in social work. One of his hobbies is singing."
