Stephon Gilmore is a Rock Hill, SC native. There’s another former first-round pick that hails from the same exact town, but the connection goes further.
Bills 1994 first-round pick Jeff Burris is from Rock Hill, SC. Burris was the 27th overall pick and spent only his first four years with Buffalo before signing a big free agent deal with Indianapolis. Gilmore has met him, but was coached by a member of Burris’ family.
“Yeah I know Jeff Burris,” said Gilmore. “His brother actually coached me in high school so I met him a couple of times. He told me to enjoy myself down here (in Buffalo). There are great people around here. He said I will like it here.”
