1976 Profile: Paul Seymour

Tight End
No. 87
"Seymour's receiving output continued to improve despite splitting time with Reuben Gant at tight end. He caught 19 passes for 268 yards and one touchdown, and had several clutch third down catches during the season.
Paul has started 42 straight games at tight end after being converted from offensive tackle. His best games: catches- four against Miami in 1975; yardage- 64 (three catches) against New England in 1974. Paul was the Bills' top draft choice in 1973 and is a devastating blocker.
Paul 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."
