1976 Profile: Bo Cornell

No. 30
"Cornell started 11 games at outside linebacker for the Bills in 1975 after moving into the starting lineup when Buffalo went to a 3-4 defense late in the 1974 season. He was switched from fullback to linebacker during the 1973 season. Very effective on special teams, Bo was elected permanent captain of the special teams by the 1974 squad.
A second round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 1971, the Bills gave up a draft choice to acquire Bo in May 1973. He has worked hard to make the transition from offense to defense.
Bo was a fullback at the University of Washington. He was chosen second team All-Coast and All-Pacific 8 Conference, and was an honorable mention All-America. His postseason appearances included the East-West Shrine Game and the Coaches All-America Game.
An economics major at Washington, Bo has traveled to Luxembourg and Mexico these last two winters. He worked in commercial real estate last year. Skiing is one of his hobbies."
