QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills WR T.J. Graham on his Skills Challenge Camp:
“This is the coolest camp that I have ever come across. If I was a young kid right now, I would eat this alive. I would have loved it. The camp came about because I used to watch those skills challenges on TV in high school and I wanted to participate in it, but I wasn’t an All-American who went to Orlando, participated in it and was on ESPN. In college I saw the same thing with the top prospects… I thought about how many other people or kids who play football would love to have that opportunity and would never get the chance. I decided to bring it to the average Joe. Everyone can do it. I even participated in the one we had this past weekend in Raleigh. Lost my voice and everything. (Laughs)” via Kiss 98.5 (5/1)
