It was a special moment at the NFL Draft Friday night when it came time for the Buffalo Bills to announce the team's 3rd round selection, 96th overall.  Hall of Fame receiver Andre Reed and running back Freddy Jackson who just recently signed a one-day contract so that he could retire as a Buffalo Bill were at the podium when they asked a special Bills fan to the stage.

Although Ezra Castro is a Dallas native he's been a life-long avid Buffalo Bills fan and likes to be called "Pancho Billa".  He's the president of the Dallas-Fort Worth Bills Backers, but he's been battling cancer.  It was the result of a Twitter campaign started by friends that the Bills decided to call Castro to the stage to announce the Bills third-round pick.

Announcers on Fox said "it tell you about that Bills community how the players interact with their fans and how the city embraces the team and the team embraces the city back."  Hats off to the Bills management for letting this special moment happen for a dedicated Bills fan.
