1975 Profile: Reggie McKenzie

No. 67
"Reggie was an All-Conference selection of both United Press International and Sporting News after winning All-NFL honors from the Associated Press, Pro Football Writers and Football NEWS in 1973, [the year he was also] winner of the Wisconsin Pro Football Writers' award as the NFL's top-blocking lineman.
He has not missed a game in his three years with the Bills, starting 43 straight games. McKenzie has outstanding speed and the ability to get out in front of the play, [along with] outstanding leadership traits.
McKenzie was a consensus All-American for Bo Schembechler at Michigan and a member of two Michigan Rose Bowl teams (1970 and 1972). A two-time All-Big Ten choice, he won invitations to the Hula Bowl and College All-Star games.
Reggie won his B.S. degree in physical education and has ambitions for graduate study, perhaps in law. He was co-chairman of Buffalo Brotherhood Week for the National Conference of Christians and Jews and is active in the public service area. He worked during the off-season as a public relations representative for a local hotel. Reggie has four brothers and three sisters. Music and reading are his hobbies."
