Bills presence strong at the Punt, Pass & Kick National Championship

Posted by buffalobills.com on January 1, 2016 – 1:08 pm

This Saturday, January 2 athletes from around the country will come together to take part in the 53rd annual NFL Punt, Pass & Kick National Championship, held in Indianapolis. The athletes range from 6-15 years of age, and will be placed into five different groups to compete for the title. While all participating athletes, and their attending family members, will receive complimentary tickets to the Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans game on Sunday, January 3, winners from the competition will be acknowledged during the game’s third and fourth quarters. The event will give each eager young athlete the opportunity to showcase his or her talent on a national level, while highlighting their local communities.

With 40 athletes in total, the Buffalo Bills will be represented by three individuals—an unprecedented number for the organization. The trio was selected based on each athlete’s individual performance during the Buffalo Bills Punt, Pass and Kick Team Championship, which was hosted at the ADPRO Sports Training Center on December 5. The Bills Team Championship winners include, Kyle Mitchell from the 6-7 boys group, Aiden Early from the 8-9 boys group, and Caleb Nuzzo from the 12-13 boys group.

Overall, the Bills Punt, Pass and Kick Team Championship was a huge success. Participants enjoyed a fun-filled day, complete with a special appearance from Bills safety Aaron Williams and on-field recognition at Ralph Wilson Stadium during the Bills vs. Texans game on December 6. Winners from each age division were also displayed on-screen before the game’s second quarter in front of a cheering crowd, and proud family and friends. For Kyle, Aiden and Caleb, advancing to the National Championship is no small feat, given the talent featured among the 40 athletes at the Bills Team Championship.

Eric Wood earns NFL Man of the Year nomination

Posted by buffalobills.com on December 2, 2015 – 12:55 pm

wood-community

Today, the NFL announced Bills center Eric Wood as one of the 32 players honored as their team’s Man of the Year. Representing the best of the NFL’s commitment to philanthropy and community impact, these players are now eligible to win the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award presented by Nationwide. The Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year Award recognizes a player for his excellence on and off the field.

Three of these nominees will be selected as finalists for the award, named for the Hall of Fame Chicago Bears running back, Walter Payton, who died in 1999. Finalists will be announced in January 2016.

The winner will be announced during the 5th Annual NFL Honors awards show, a two-hour primetime special airing nationally on Feb. 6, the night before Super Bowl 50, from 9-11 p.m. ET on CBS.

Each of the 32 team nominees receives a $5,000 donation to their charity of choice. The two runner-ups will receive an additional $6,000 donation, and the winner will receive an additional $50,000 donation. Donations will be courtesy of the NFL Foundation and Nationwide.

“Serving their communities and philanthropic causes is a strong and long-standing tradition of NFL players,” said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. “These outstanding young men embrace and represent that important commitment of giving back to our communities. We salute and thank our players for their leadership.”

Wood is a strong advocate for many of the initiatives the Bills and the NFL support – including PLAY 60, Breast Cancer Awareness, Salute to Service. Each October, he has played a key role in the Bills’ annual Billieve event to promote breast cancer awareness and assist in promotional efforts to support the cause. Eric also helped launch the Offensive Line Holiday Party – dinner and shopping for 30 teenage boys around the holiday season. In 2014 he launched “The Eric Wood Foundation” to provide seriously ill, special needs and physically challenged children throughout the Greater Buffalo area.
