1975 Profile: Gary Marangi

No. 17
Boston College
"Gary showed outstanding potential as a field leader in brief action in three games in 1974. His first pro pass was a 44-yard touchdown strike to J.D. Hill against Miami. He came off the bench to replace the injured Joe Ferguson and completed six of nine passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns against the Dolphins. Gary hit Bob Chandler with a short touchdown pass in the final minute to tie the Dolphins after leading the Bills on a long drive. He also played against the Jets and Rams. He has a strong arm, reads defenses well and is a poised leader.
Marangi was BC's starting quarterback for two seasons and finished as the Eagles' third leading passer of all time with 2,739 yards on 235 completions. He was also a running threat from the BC wishbone.
Captain of the Eagles as a senior, Gary was an All-East and All-New England selection and received the coaches award as BC's outstanding player. He played in both the East-West Shrine Game and the American Bowl.
Gary was a marketing major. His hobbies include all sports and his two pet Great Danes."
