DAILY REPORT
– Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams was named the defensive captain for USA Football’s 2013 All-Fundamentals Team following a national fan vote conducted throughout January.  The fifth annual USA Football All-Fundamentals Team, which honors 26 NFL players – 11 offense, 11 defense and four on special teams – recognizes NFL players who exhibit exemplary football techniques for youth players to emulate. Playing fundamentally-sound football fosters better on-field performance and inherent safety benefits. Williams stays low off the ball, keeping his pads below blockers to provide a small target. After exploding off the line on the snap, he gains ground quickly across the line through quick feet and proper hand placement. As a captain, Williams will receive an equipment grant valued at $3,000 from USA Football to donate to the youth or high school football programs of his choice. Williams has selected his high school alma mater, Ruston High School in Ruston, LA, as the recipient of his grant.

– The Buffalo Bills today announced that Jason Rebrovich has been named the team’s assistant defensive line coach. Rebrovich will enter his second year with the Bills in 2014 after spending last season as a defensive quality control coach. In his new role, Rebrovich will work in conjunction with Bills’ defensive line coach Pepper Johnson.  Prior to coming to Buffalo, Rebrovich spent the previous 2011 and 2012 seasons at Syracuse as a defensive assistant under head coach Doug Marrone. From 2008-10, Rebrovich was the defensive coordinator at Cortland State. Rebrovich began his coaching career at his alma mater of Cortland as the team’s defensive line and strength coach for three seasons (2001-03). A native of Clarence, NY, Rebrovich worked with the defensive line at Ferris State University from 2005-07 and at Concord University in 2004. He also served as the head strength and conditioning coach at both Ferris and Concord.
