The NFL’s Buffalo Bills are reaching down to the roots of the game. On Thursday, Bills’ head coach Sean McDermott invited about 40 high school football coaches from New York’s Section VI to the team’s final OTA practice.
Here’s what two of the coaches that attended the practice had to say via the Bills’ website:
Mike Vastola, Head Coach at West Seneca West HS
“It’s always nice when the big team in town reaches out to the high school coaches. You know the previous staffs had clinics, but we like the field experience and we’re lucky to have gotten the invite and enjoy the nice weather. This is what coaches and football junkies like – seeing the game in action.”
Rich Robbins, Head Coach at Canisius HS
“It’s outstanding. Anytime a high school coach like me is able to be here, see some drills and watch the organization practice, see how things are done, and get to be around the Bills is a great day.”
