Elon University (1966-1969)


For the 1960's, Rich McGeorge was a very different tight end. In an era where tight ends were primary blockers, McGeorge was the main target for the Elon passing offense. As Elon's first player to enter the College Football Hall of Fame, McGeorge rewrote the school’s receiving records book by setting school career records in receptions (224), yards (3,486) and touchdowns (31). McGeorge, a 1967-1969 first-team All-Conference selection, set many records his junior year including single-game records with 15 catches, 285 receiving yards and four touchdowns. He also set single-season records that same year, leading the league with 65 grabs for 1,061 yards and a 117.1 receiving yards per game average. Chosen with the 16th overall pick of the 1970 NFL Draft, McGeorge enjoyed a nine-year career with the Green Bay Packers, earning the team's Offensive Player of the Year honors in 1973. He went on to a coaching career that included stops at Duke, Florida, North Carolina Central, Shaw, and the Miami Dolphins.
