Jim Kelly is at it again, sharing his Hall of Fame knowledge for the 30th year with kids at his annual football camp in Orchard Park.

Kelly, who has battled back from cancer, says as long as he's healthy, he'll continue to give back to the community and share his passion for the game he loves.

"I still enjoy it. I love being around here," he said Tuesday morning at the Bills practice facility. "I always visualized 20 years maybe and how it'd be really cool if I made it to 20. Now we're at 30. Now I'm thinking, maybe I can shoot for 40. As long as I'm healthy enough to do this, I'm going to continue to do it. Right now I fee pretty good."

Two of the big things the Hall of Fame quarterback preaches at his camp every year are discipline and attention to detail -- what he says the Bills have lacked in recent years.

"I think the biggest thing we have to do is, each player has to hold themselves accountable for everything.  I think in the past, with everything being relaxed so much, I think Coach (Sean) McDermott brings something we haven't had here in a while and it's discipline.

"I want to turn this thing around," he continued.  "Not only for the coaching staff and the fans, but for the Pegulas.  All the investment they've put into it, not only with the Bills but the Sabres and how they came -- I want to see if for them, too."
