Mary Rose, C., 100, Geneseo, NY

Mary Rose Carreo, a resident of Geneseo, New York, had her wish to meet a Buffalo Bills’ player granted thanks to the generosity of the Bills’ organization. Carreo has been a Buffalo Bills’ fan since she can remember and has attended games and training camp in the past. Carreo, who turned 100 on July 20th, is still a huge football fan and wished to meet a Buffalo Bills player for her birthday. She and her husband were married for 62 years until his passing in 2001. Together they raised two daughters and Carreo now has seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. In addition to raising her daughters, Carreo worked for over 20 years in the local middle school and high school cafeterias. She also volunteered for the ladies auxiliary at the local fire department, was a Girl Scout leader and was very active in St. Mary’s Church. Her wish was granted on Friday, August 5th when she met several players including head coach Rex Ryan, quarterback Tyrod Taylor, Reggie Bush and LeSean McCoy to name a few.  The Bills also treated her to a mini shopping spree at the gift shop and gave her a customized jersey with "100" on it.
