THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
April 4, 1972 — GROUND-BREAKING CEREMONIES HELD FOR NEW STADIUM
Ground breaking ceremonies were held in Orchard Park, NY for the Bills’ new 80,000-seat stadium. Bills owner Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. and Erie County Legislature Chairman Richard J. Keane both turned the first shovel full of dirt.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
WR Stevie Johnson
On his first impressions of Coach Marrone:
“The energy, I like the energy. He could have been the same blah, blah, blah—but it was up-tempo. It felt good to me. I am pretty sure the vibes were throughout the room as well. We are going to be up-tempo and have attitude. Like I said about Coach Marrone, it was refreshing just to see that.”
