1976 Profile: Willie Parker

Long Snapper-Center
No. 61
North Texas State
"Parker has played in every game for the Bills for the past two years, seeing action on special teams and as a snapper for punts, field goals and PAT's. He's also been the number one backup center and can play guard; versatility is his big asset.
Willie was drafted third by San Francisco in 1971 and spent most of that season on the 49ers reserve squad. He was on the LA reserve list for a full year before being picked up by Buffalo for a future draft choice in September 1973.
Parker was a second team All-Missouri Valley Conference choice as a junior and a first team selection as a senior. He went back to Texas this winter after spending the two previous years in Orchard Park. He has passed his insurance examination."
