Professional careerEdit

After playing college football at Texas Christian University, Bulaich was drafted in the first round (18th overall) in the 1970 NFL Draft by the Baltimore Colts, for whom he wore number 36.

The 6'1", 217-pound running back/fullback held the Colts single-game rushing record, 198 yards against the New York Jets on September 19, 1971, until the 2000 season when Edgerrin James broke the record by rushing for 219 yards.[1][2] Later in that 1971 season, Bulaich was named to the AFC Pro Bowl squad. He was also on the cover of Sports Illustrated in the November issue in 1971.[3][2]

In 120 career games with the Baltimore Colts (1970–72), Philadelphia Eagles (1973–74) and Miami Dolphins (1975–79), Bulaich rushed for 3,362 yards and 30 touchdowns with a 4.1 rushing average. He also made 224 receptions for 1,766 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Bulaich currently lives in Hurst, Texas and works as an executive for IESI-BFC Ltd., a waste management company, in Haltom City, Texas.[1][2]
