Ted has played four different positions since joining the Bills six days before the start of the 1971 season in a trade with Oakland; he played most of the 1974 season at linebacker and has seen action as a running back, tight end and safety. His only start came as a safety in 1973. Koy was the Raiders' 2nd round selection in 1970 and played in 14 games for Oakland as a rookie.
He was captain of Texas' 1969 National Championship team. An All-America and All-Southwest Conference running back, Koy made the All-America blocking team. He saw postseason action in the Cotton and Senior Bowls and was a member of the 1970 College All-Star squad.
Ted's undergraduate degree is in journalism and public relations and he is studying at the Texas A & M School of Veterinary Medicine in the off-season. He's active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.
His brother, Ernie, played with the New York Giants from 1965-70, a sister, Margaret, is a former sportswriter for the Abilene Reporter-News, and his dad was a Texas All-America in football and baseball who later played professionally with the baseball Cardinals and Dodgers."
