BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo FAMbase has partnered with Chalk Line Apparel to create a limited edition jacket for Buffalo Bills super fan Ezra Castro, known as Pancho Billa.

He was originally from El Paso, Texas eventually moved to Dallas and had no connection to Western New York but was considered one of the biggest Bills fans, stating in an interview with 7 Eyewitness News in 2018, “the Bills Mafia has really become a family to me.”
There will be a memorial and celebration of life for Castro Saturday in Hammer's Lot.
