Do you have a Bills/NFL connection story?

I roomed with a guy in college who played kicker for Texarkana High School (Texas side).  The quarterback on my roommate's team was a guy from Arkansas named Ryan Mallett.  He ended up going to Michigan, transferring back to Arkansas, and now he's being looked at as a serious NFL prospect in a year or so.

I also went to high school (Conway, Arkansas) with a guy named Peyton Hillis.  This guy was an unstoppable halfback in Conway, it was fun to watch him destroy all the hated Little Rock schools in our division.  Peyton ended up going t the Razorbacks, who made him a fullback.  He was drafted by the Broncos, and has been enjoying somewhat of a nice NFL career.

In college (Central Arkansas) I was in the marching band, and we always formed the tunnel for the football team to march out.  One time, we started into the fight song, and the players came out all excited as usual.  #11 accidentally brushed by me coming onto the field, knocking my sax to the ground.  Stunned, I backed up and recovered it.  I watched as he couldn't stop and turn around, or he'd get trampled by his teammates, but he sorta turned around to apologize.  I looked him up after the game.  This guy's name was Jacob Ford.  I didn't think anything of it until this year, when I saw him (on the Tennessee Titans) come blowing in around the left tackle to almost sack Peyton Manning.

Now if somebody like me from a town like Conway, Arkansas has these connections, I know other Bills fans do.  Have you ever met, had any run-ins with, or otherwise have a connection with any Bills or NFL players?

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
