Throwback Thursday: EJ Manuel as a kid

Posted by Buffalo Bills on September 19, 2013 – 5:13 pm


Believe it or not, Bills QB EJ Manuel was always the well-rounded athlete we see on the field each Sunday.

He started playing football as a 6-year old, and has fond memories of his peewee days.

“My childhood memories would be having a really good team and playing with the guys I grew up with in my neighborhood,” he said. “I played with a lot of players who played in college, but I was just one of the lucky ones who continued on.”

Manuel also played baseball, basketball, soccer and ran track.

“Football was my favorite,” he said, “and once I got into high school and started getting recruited heavily, that’s when I stopped playing basketball.”
