Tonight is going to be a very special night for one Buffalo Bills player.

It is always a great honor to have your number retired as a football player. It means that you made an impact both on and off the field.

One Buffalo Bills PLAYER will feel that joy tonight as he sees his high school number retired. Bills fullback Reggie Gilliam's agent posted on social media that Gilliam's high school will be retiring his number during their home game tonight.

Gilliam has become a Bills Mafia favorite since he joined the Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2020. Since joining the team, Gilliam has played in 45 games, rushing for three yards on three attempts. He has also recorded 13 catches for 108 yards and two touchdowns.

Back in High School, Gilliam was a running back who rushed for 565 yards and eight touchdowns on 87 carries during his senior year. He also had 18 catches for 280 yards and three touchdowns. That year he was also named first-team All-Ohio Capital Conference Central Division.

Even though Gilliam hasn't put up big numbers in the NFL, he has been a big part of the Bills special teams and signed a new two-year deal worth 5.2 million dollars with the Bills in 2022. Having Gilliam's number retired just shows that Fullbacks do matter!
