BDC 5/2-Nelson to visit grand prize winner

Posted by Bills Daily Charge on May 2, 2012 – 8:53 am


DAILY REPORT
–Bills WR David Nelson is visiting the 2011 Touchdown for Teachers grand prize winner, Anthony Agnello’s, Orchard Park High School class today. Students will sit-in for an open forum with Nelson. Agnello was the 2011 winner of the community teacher recognition program that honors teachers for their outstanding service to their schools and communities. In addition to the visit, the school won a $1,000 grant and on-field recognition at the December 4, 2011 home game where Agnello was named the grand prize winner.

–Bills S Jairus Byrd made it on the Pro Football Focus Top 100 players list for the 2011 season. Byrd ranks 72nd on their list:
“This was the year where Byrd established himself as one of the league’s top safeties, with a season that earned him our third-highest grade of all his peers (+13.0). He broke up seven passes to go with his three interceptions, while only allowing 51.5% of passes into coverage to be completed. What’s more, for a player who spends most of his time playing deep (84.1% of all snaps), he notched up 35 tackles in run defense, good for 16th of all safeties. He’s a rare beast; a free safety who is active on every play.”
