Reid Ferguson (Long Snapper)

Reid Ferguson, Buffalo Bills Long Snapper, demonstrates his honor and appreciation for our nation's military, veterans and their families through his continuous involvement in the Buffalo community. Both of his grandfathers, Jim Seal and Robert Ferguson, great uncle, Jerry Seale, and great grandfather, Howard Seale, all served in the military. During the 2020 and 2021 Salute to Service weeks, Ferguson hosted a meet and greet happy hour honoring military members, veterans, and their families at a local brewery – which he will be hosting again in November this season. The event benefited the Veterans One-Stop Center of Western New York (WNY), which empowers veterans to achieve economic well-being by offering holistic social and health services needed to complete the transition from military to civilian life. During the 2019 Salute to Service pre-game ceremony, he held the full-field flag alongside 150+ active and former military members during the national anthem. In 2020, Ferguson and his teammates assembled Salute to Service gift bags that were distributed to local military organizations throughout WNY. Last season, Ferguson selected the Whirlwind Veterans and Warrior Retreat for his My Cause My Cleats organization. That organization, located in Eden, NY, is a resiliency agricultural program established by veterans for veterans of all military branches. This past April, Ferguson launched Grills Mafia, a unique BBQ x Buffalo Bills apparel line where a portion of the proceeds are donated to WNY veteran charities.
