1976 Profile: Reggie McKenzie

No. 67
"McKenzie has now started 57 straight games with the Bills in the last four years, with a strong performance in 1975 to help the Bills' offense break several records. An All-Conference selection of both UPI and the Sporting News in 1974 after winning All-Pro honors from the AP, Pro Football Writers and Football News in 1973. He was also the winner of the Wisconsin Pro Football Writers' award as the NFL's top blocking lineman in 1973.
Reggie has outstanding speed and the ability to get out in front of a play, and his pass blocking is vastly improved. He has outstanding leadership traits and is the Bills' player representative.
McKenzie was a consensus All-American for Bo Schembechler at Michigan and a member of two Michigan Rose Bowl teams (1970,1972). 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 worked during the off-season as a public relations representative for a local hotel. Music and reading are Reggie's hobbies.
He has four brothers and three sisters and was married in June to Gthellean Hicks, Miss Massachusetts of 1974."
