ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WKBW) — An 11-year-old had the chance to catch a touchdown in Highmark Stadium before Sunday’s Bills’ game.
“It was probably the best day of my life,” Bills’ fan Bryce Muller said.
Bryce Muller was invited to the field by Stefon Diggs. Muller travelled all the way from Virginia to watch the Bills play for his birthday.
I just caught up with Bryce and he told me all about why Sunday was so special to him! He gives a huge thank you to AJ Klein, @stefondiggs, @BuffaloBills, his mom and uncle. Hear his full story tonight at 11! @WKBW— Natalie Fahmy (@NatalieFahmy) November 1, 2021
And happy 11th birthday, Bryce! 🥳🏈 https://t.co/lpe3BVazuQ pic.twitter.com/EUfU1oSzNq
He says Diggs originally tried to pass him a football in the stands, but another fan intercepted it.
“Diggs went like ‘no, no, no,” then he asked me to go on the field,” Muller said.
Muller comes to buffalo every few months to visit family. He says his dad is a Minnesota Vikings fan, so he has been watching Diggs ever since he was drafted.
“When he got traded to the Bills, I wasn’t mad at all because its team to team,” Muller said.
And this was his first game in a while but surely a memorable one.
“At the end of the game, AJ Klein, he gave me his gloves,” Muller said.
He says he plans on taking great care of his new Bills’ player souvenirs and he can't wait to tell his friends all about his weekend away.
And he says thank you to Diggs, Klein, his uncle and mom for making his dream come true.
