ORCHARD PARK, NY (WIVB) — From the golf course to the roster, former Buffalo Bill Harrison Phillips was in town to give back to the community.
Harrison’s Playmakers sports camp was held at Highmark Stadium on Sunday. It gives children with developmental differences and special needs a chance to hit the grid and have fun
Phillips said he always enjoys coming back to Buffalo and added that it’s home.
“I made this place my home, like home-home, and anyone who’s followed the Bills or my career knows how much I meant that,” Phillips said. “And it means a lot to keep it going and come back here in my off-season, come back here in the summer, keep doing events year round for these kids because they’re my family.”
Last season, Phillips was nominated for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for all his great work in the community.
He currently plays for the Minnesota Vikings.
