Countdown to Bills new Uniform Unveiling – 8 days

The group will be formally inducted in an early November ceremony this fall.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Former Bills guard Ruben Brown on being inducted into the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame — “This is truly an honor for me.  A young guy coming from a place called Piney River, Virginia. I never thought I would’ve come to Buffalo and fall in love with it and say this is the place where I want to raise my kids and have a home. So I say to the committee and all of the guys that came before me, thank you for helping me find my home.”

NOTES AND NUMBERS
