Home Sweet Home
It’s always a feel-good story when a hometown guy gets to play for the city he grew up in. Well, I’m sure it’s the same for coaches.
Daboll is a native of Welland, Ontario, which is just over a half an hour drive from Buffalo– border traffic aside, especially on game day.
Daboll didn’t stay in Canada long after realizing he wanted to make a career in football. Like most aspiring athletes, he made his way south of the border to play high school football at St. Francis High School. The private Catholic school is located in a Buffalo suburb, Athol Springs.
The Bills coach later went on to play NCAA football at the University of Rochester where he was a two-year starter for the Yellowjackets.
To get a coach who’s a hometown guy and has play-calling experience is a double whammy for the Buffalo Bills. You better believe he’ll be looking to bring home another Lombardi Trophy to Buffalo, but this time as a Bill. The Western New York ties run through Daboll’s veins like water in the Nile River.
