1976 Profile: Donnie Green

Offensive Tackle
No. 74
"Green started every game at tackle in 1975 and had perhaps the best season of his career. He reported to training camp 20 pounds lighter than in previous years. Donnie completely dominated L.C. Greenwood in the Bills' win over Pittsburgh.
Donnie missed four starts in 1974 due to an appendectomy, but has started five straight seasons for the Bills, longer than any other offensive lineman. He was the unlikely receiver of a deflected pass against Miami in 1974 (no gain on the play). He's one of the biggest men on the Buffalo roster.
Green was listed as honorable mention on AP and UPI's 1970 college All-America teams. He was captain of the Purdue squad as a senior and won an invitation to the American Bowl game in Tampa. Donnie once set a Boilermaker freshman record in the shotput with a throw of 49-7.
He took a physical education course at Purdue and is interested in social work. One of his hobbies is singing."
