THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
July 10, 1960 — FIRST TRAINING CAMP OPENS
The Bills’ first training camp opened at the Roycroft Inn in East Aurora, NY. Practice was held on the Knox Polo Field and the team used the locker room at East Aurora High School.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills Head Coach Chan Gailey
On finding the balance between simultaneously using RBs Fred Jackson and CJ Spiller on the field:
“You don’t want to do too much when they’re both in there because if you lose one of them then you’re without a big part of your package. So you’re trying to construct enough to create problems for the defense, but not so much that you’re relying totally on having both of them at the same time. That’s a fine line that you walk creating offenses to be able to take advantage of both good players.”
