When UB all-time receiving touchdown leader Alex Neutz graduated two years ago, no one was quite sure who was going to replace him as the Buffalo football team’s No. 1 wide receiver.
It wasn’t until a previously unknown player named Ron Willoughby exploded for 10 catches, more than 130 yards and two touchdowns in Buffalo’s 2014 season-opener that the team had any idea who its next go-to guy would be.
With Willoughby now having graduated, the Bulls seem to be going for a similar approach this offseason: give every receiver an equal opportunity through the grind of the spring and summer and see who emerges once the season kicks off in September.read more >>

Before James O’Hagan became the anchor of the Buffalo football offensive line, he was a wrestler by trade. And he was one of the best.
He held the title of the best heavyweight in the state of New York and was one of the top wrestlers in the country at 285 pounds.
But holding that title also had its limitations. For O’Hagan, it was food.

Now that his wrestling days are behind him, the rising sophomore center’s only focus is maintaining the perfect body for football. And he can finally do something he longed to do in high school.read more >>
