Buffalo Bills’ Star Wow Fans with Non-Football Skills at Local Charity Event [WATCH]
Josh Allen shouldn't quit his day job, but if he did, it seems as though he'd have a number of options when choosing a new career.
Allen has been the Buffalo Bills' quarterback since 2018, and during that period of time, we've learned a lot about his incredible athletic ability. This ability includes sports outside of football, as for example, Allen is a prolific golfer, having just played in the Pebble Beach Pro-Am tournament in February.
Based on a video that went viral this past weekend, we can also add softball to that long list of talents.
Watch: Josh Allen Launches Bombs as Part of Charity Softball HR Derby
A story from Sports Illustrated and other outlets detailed the performance of Bills' QB Josh Allen, who was once again a part of teammate Micah Hyde's annual charity softball game. The game was played this past Sunday, May 7th, at Sahlen Field in Buffalo, home of the Buffalo Bisons, the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.
Allen entered the event as the two-time reigning home run derby champion, and for the third year in a row, put on a show for the spectators in the stands. Take a look:
Allen was a star among stars on Sunday, which should surprise no one. Check out these other videos of QB1 from the weekend:
Check out some of our favorite responses to the original video showcasing Allen's incredible athletic talent:
Hyde's event, meanwhile, was a complete success from start to finish, as a sold-out crowd at Sahlen Field watched Hyde, coach Sean McDermott and 36 other teammates battle on the diamond, all for a good cause. In a battle of Offense vs. Defense, it was the defensive side of the ball that picked up the victory, 14-11, in five innings.
The real victory, however, came via the generosity of Bills Mafia.
According to The Buffalo News, Hyde and his wife, Amanda, were presented three checks totaling $470,000 for the Imagine For Youth Foundation benefiting underprivileged youth sports in the Buffalo area.
This was the fourth edition of Hyde's charity football tournament. After joining Buffalo in 2017, he started the game in 2019, and the tradition resumed in 2021, then again in 2022.
The result of softball game is another in a long list of examples of the strength of the Buffalo community. Not only that, but it further proves that Bills Mafia can accomplish incredible things when they join together as one.
