Watched Eric play football at Louisville Cards giving it his all both on field and off. Watched his enthusiasm and athleticism follow him throughout his career at Buffalo, and admire his quality of who he is as a person in giving it his all in whatever he does. Love his ability to interactions with the players and fans, and believe he’ll go far in this and anything he desires! Definitely enjoy this venue, and would like to see him be one of the new additions to a regular spot on one of the NFL Sports Shows on anyone of them he’d be a great addition to anyone of them. It’s refreshing and entertaining to watch and a must see for Sports Fans.
