Inside The Bills

Williams moved by military service

Last Friday, a number of Buffalo Bills and their families gathered for a night of faith-based sharing with the community. As part of a national organization called Athletes in Action, “A Night Out With the Bills” showcased player stories of growing in the NFL through their faith, as well as stories from other community members.

Also attending the event were a number of members of the military, who were there to volunteer. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams was so moved by their presence and what they do for our country that he asked to speak to them seperately, asking them into another room to privately thank them for their service. As tonight’s game against the Miami Dolphins is the Bills Salute to Service game, Williams gave each member present 2 tickets to the game.

“I have an affection for what those guys do,” he said. “I think what they do is important to what I do, because I’m only able to play this game and do the things I can because of what they do for our county. I think we’re all indebted to them a little bit and I think the least you can do is give them some tickets to a football game.”
