I have been writing for Gridiron Heroics since September 2022. I love to write about all things Buffalo Bills and Syracuse Orange. There is almost nothing that I can't talk sports and debate about, because with me, "It's all about the Sports."

On Wednesday, January 25, 2023, the USFL and Hall of Fame Village leaders held a press conference to state that Canton will provide the location for the New Jersey Generals  and Pittsburgh Mauler teams. It will host the regular season games and the North Division coming in June as well as the USFL Championship game in the beginning of July. “The USFL is excited that the Pittsburgh Maulers and the New Jersey Generals will practice and play games in Canton during the 2023 regular season,” said Daryl Johnston, USFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations. “The outstanding regional support we…

Now that the Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs has come and gone, if you read my last story, on “What were your favorite moments from the NFL Wild Card Games”, you’d found out that my family and myself are big Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, and New York Giants fans.

Let’s take a look at the good, the bad, and what’s going to make these three teams come back even stronger…

Growing up in Upstate, NY with a family of sports fans, especially in pro football, I can’t believe that three of the teams that I cheered for with my family, have moved on to the Divisional round. My father and I are die-hard Buffalo Bills fans, while my mother cheers for Dem Boyz in Dallas, and my Uncle roots for the Big Blue in New York. These three-teams all played hard, so let’s talk about how they faired against their opponents, along with the other three winning teams. Los…

While the NFL regular season is finished, and we are heading into the playoffs, there are many coaches who can take credit for the calls and plays that they make on an every day basis. The NFL Coach of the Year award isn’t about the most productive or superior coach. It rewards the individual that gets the most done with the players they have and goes beyond all the given expectations. Most coaches don’t get the credit they deserve for taking underachieved teams and turning them around very fast. Brian Daboll was up to the task the minute he arrived…

While the opposing teams are always finding ways to steal play call signals, a few sample of teams in college football have been very comedic or sometimes daring with their play card creations. Let’s take a look at the Top 10 Play Cards in College Football over the Years. A big difference between college football and the NFL is how the plays are being called.  Whereas quarterbacks may retrieve the call through a radio in the pros, college is a bit more creative in directing the calls from the sidelines.

Wow, what a bowl season and an exciting ending in a game between two programs with young and promising head coaches. Notre Dame’s first-year head coach Marcus Freeman took his Ohio State mentality with him to battle second- year head coach of South Carolina Shane Beamer, who is the son of legendary VA Tech coach Frank Beamer. It was the first-time the Irish and the Gamecocks squared off in a game since 1984 when South Carolina won 36-32. The Gator Bowl has taken place ever since 1946, introducing it as the sixth eldest college bowl. Wake Forest beat South Carolina…

It’s the year 2022. Another season of college football has come and gone. Conference champions have already been crowned and now it’s Bowl time. But for some of the game’s star players, playing in an additional post season game for the college they currently represent does not mean anything anymore. In fact, some players have decided to literally switch Universities right before their current team plays it’s Bowl game. There is a bright spot to all of this, as this unique way of leaving to attend another college is known as the Transfer Portal, in which it has revolutionized the…

It’s now week 15 in the NFL and Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys have wrangled in T.Y. Hilton. The former Indianapolis Colt was signed as the team has come to terms with the 4-time pro-bowler. The ‘Boys are currently 10-3 on the year and Hilton will join wide receivers CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup, and Noah Brown to see if he can help the Dallas Cowboys reach the Playoffs and beyond.
