Sean McDermott is just a class act. The Buffalo Bills are all of the hype right now. They are one of, if not THE, hottest teams in the league that any football fan will have their eyes on this year.

But, even in all of the hype and all of the good things happening at 1 Bills Drive, the Buffalo Bills and head coach Sean McDermott, recognize that none of this gets to happen without the fans.

There are tens of thousands of Buffalo Bills fans. Though, each one matters and Sean McDermott sent a typed out letter to the family and friends of a lifelong Buffalo Bills fan.

Alison Buckpitt, from Rochester, recently lost her grandma at the age of 99. She posted on Facebook a letter that the family received from Sean McDermott. Buckpitt said that her grandma had Buffalo Bills season tickets more years of her life than not and that she was a massive Buffalo Bills fan. McDermott wrote in his letter:

“Hearing stories of the fandom of Eleanor reminds me how fortunate I am to be the head coach of the Bills.”

Lets hope they win a Super Bowl for Eleanor.
