1977 Profile: Bo Cornell

No. 30
"Bo appeared in all 14 games in 1976 and started one game (against Baltimore) when the Bills began with the 3-4 defensive alignment. He was credited with nine tackles, mostly on special teams.
He started 11 games at outside linebacker in 1975 when Buffalo used the 3-4 exclusively. He was switched from fullback to linebacker during the 1973 season. Very effective on special teams, Bo was special teams captain during the 1974 season. A second round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 1971, the Bills gave up a draft choice to acquire him in May 1973.
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 in the off-season. Last winter he was popular on the banquet circuit around Western New York. Skiing is one of his hobbies."
