Lawrence McCutcheon
Lawrence McCutcheon
Lawrence McCutcheon was born on June 2, 1950 in Plainview, Texas. He graduated from Plainview High School in 1968. McCutcheon is a former running back who played in the National Football League for the Los Angeles Rams from 1972 to 1980, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks in 1980, and 1981 with the Buffalo Bills.


After High School, he attended Colorado State where he set more than 20 records for the collegiate Rams. McCutcheon was the first player in school history to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season and helped define a new generation of running backs at Colorado State University.

He was a third-round draft choice of the Los Angeles Rams in 1972 and became the club’s all-time rushing leader. McCutcheon later played for Denver, Buffalo, and Seattle, ending his career after the 1981 season.

In Super Bowl XIV, McCutcheon threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Ron Smith, giving the Rams a 19–17 lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, the Rams lost the game, 31–19.


He is also an actor, known for Wonder Woman (1975), NFL Monday Night Football (1970) and The NFL on NBC (1965).
