1975 Profile: Paul Seymour

Tight End
No. 87
"Seymour improved his receiving output in 1974, grabbing 15 passes for 246 yards and a pair of touchdowns. He has started 29 straight games at tight end since being converted from an offensive tackle.
His best game last year was a two-touchdown performance in the Bills' 30-28 win over New England in Orchard Park. Paul had three catches for 64 yards in that game, including his longest gain of the year, a 40-yard touchdown catch from Joe Ferguson. He also had a 22-yard touchdown catch against the Steelers in the playoffs. He was the Bills' top draft choice in 1973.
Seymour started his college career at tight end and moved to tackle in his junior season. He won All-Big Ten and All-America honors in 1972 and was selected to participate in the Hula Bowl, East-West Shrine Game and College All-Star Game.
Physical education and history were his areas of concentration as an undergraduate. His brother, Jim, was an All-America at Notre Dame who later played professionally with the Chicago Bears. Paul is a guitar player, and music and reading are his hobbies."
