The Jills at the Buffalo Bills Season Ticket Holder Draft Party
Friday night, the Buffalo Bills invited season ticket holders to come to the Fieldhouse in Orchard Park to watch the 2nd and 3rd rds of the draft with hundreds of other devoted Bills fans as well as tour the locker room and check out some of the Bills' vendors. In addition, 10 veteran members of the Buffalo Jills were on hand for the event to sign autographs and pose for photos.
2nd year vets Sara, Emily, Morgan, and Amanda V
It actually feels kind of different saying veterans as all but 3 of the girls in attendance were rookies last season themselves. Emily, for one, feels more comfortable about being a vet as, after a year with the squad, she knows more about what to expect when it comes to what lies ahead.
Former Bills C Al Bemiller with the Jills
In addition to the fans and Jills in attendance, several Bills alumni were on hand as well including last year's Wall of Fame inductee Booker Edgerson and former Bills C Al Bemiller who I've known and have talked with for well over a decade myself. Bills 1st rd draft pick Marcell Dareus even put in an appearance to thunderous applause at the end of a busy day for him.

Of course with several fantastic dancers from the Jills in attendance, you just know they were going to put on a dance performance...or two and we have an HD video of the 2nd of those performances for everyone to view.
Coming up next for the Jills, they'll be concentrating on getting the squad ready for a Uniform Unveiling ceremony (once the lockout is over again), the Jills 9th Annnual Golf Tournament, and the 2011-2012 NFL Season. Stay tuned to the Buffalo Pro Cheer Blog for more news on the 2011 Buffalo Jills!
