1977 Profile: Keith Moody

Cornerback-Punt Returner
No. 46
"One of the pleasant surprises of the 1976 season. A 10th round pick, Keith ended up leading the Bills in punt returns and kickoff returns and was second on the club with three pass interceptions for 63 yards. He appeared in all 14 games, started twice and was the number one backup at cornerback.
His 67-yard punt return for a touchdown against the Jets tied the game for the Bills and was the Bills' first touchdown on a punt return in three years. Keith was among the AFC leaders in returns in 1976, accumulating 687 return yards. He's quick and aggressive with a bright future.
Moody was an ECAC first team selection in 1975 as the top Syracuse defensive back and punt returner. He picked off six passes in '75 and returned 28 punts for an 8.1 yard average. He earned three letters and played in the American Bowl in 1975, but sat out the 1974 season.
A physical education major interested in counseling and public relations work, his college nickname is 'Juice.'"
