Buffalo and Western New York had tons of connection in yesterday's game. One man from Cattaraugus County, U.S. Army Sgt. Kilian Abers got some TV time as he stood behind national anthem singer, Demi Lovato.

Sgt. Abers is part of the military color guard and actually, does a lot of high-profile events, whether it be the Pentagon or White House or sporting event. According to the Buffalo News:

I’m sergeant and a part of the Continental Color Guard that’s attached to the fourth battalion, third infantry regiment out of Fort Myer in Virginia,” Abers told The News. “Our unit is tasked with high-visibility missions such as the Super Bowl, the MLB all-star game and the World Series.”

Abers played football, basketball and baseball for Pine Valley High School. In addition, three WNY Chiefs' players will get a ring.
