Bills fans rally as they meet a legendary player

WEST SENECA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Fans are rallying together ahead of the Bills season opener.

And they’re getting the chance to meet Thurman Thomas. He’s taking time to talk with fans about his career, the upcoming season,  with fans, talk about the season, sign autographs and snap photos.

This is all part of the partnership between M&T and the Bills– a partnership that has been going on for more than three decades.

Fans say it’s exciting to be able to come here and meet such a legendary player.

“He’s just a nice guy,” said Fran Cozzo, a fan getting a few pictures signed. “He’s down-to-earth; a nice family man’ somebody to look up to for my grandchildren.”

“It’s fun actually,” said Dustin Nowak, another fan.  “I didn’t know this was even happening. My brother told me this morning and I got really excited about it. I actually have never met a Bills player or a former Bills player. I’m not the type of person to go to training camp or things like that so it’s cool being in the presence of someone who is so important to Buffalo.”
