"Back to Football Friday" Celebration Features Buffalo Bills Player

Buffalo Bills linebacker Andra Davis recently helped students at Gateway-Longview's Lynde School in Williamsville celebrate the start of the NFL season.

More than 200 students, faculty and staff at the school took part in a "Back to Football Friday" celebration, an event that was held to support Gateway-Longview's NFL Play 60 grant application.

If selected as a recipient of the grant, Gateway-Longview will receive $10,000 towards the construction of a new therapeutic playground at its Lynde School, which will help to match a $70,000 grant from the John R. Oishei Foundation. The grant's recipients will be selected in October.

More photos from the "Back to Football Friday" celebration can be found on Gateway-Longview's Facebook fan page.

Gateway-Longview would like to thank the Buffalo Bills for their continued partnership. It is greatly appreciated.
