BUFFALO, N.Y. — Supporting both quarterback Josh Allen and a good cause? Count Buffalo Bills fans in.
Before and after the Bills’ Week 4 win over the Houston Texans, Allen represented his high school, wearing a gray Firebaugh Eagles sweatshirt. Upon seeing photos of Allen’s look, Bills fans immediately wanted to know where they could get their own versions of the sweatshirt.
Based on the significant demand, the Bills worked with Firebaugh High School in Firebaugh, California, to sell the sweatshirts through the One Buffalo website. The school had no longer been making the “throwback” look prior to Allen’s fashion statement. The school’s athletic teams now use a logo that resembles the Philadelphia Eagles, not the one Allen was wearing.
All proceeds from the sale went toward supporting the high school, per Allen’s request. Thus far, hoodie sales have generated over $80,000 in donations for Firebaugh High School, ESPN confirmed. The hoodie is being sold for $40. Sweatshirts remain available for presale purchase until 5 p.m. ET Monday, per the high school.

Firebaugh has a population of about 8,300 and is located west of Fresno, California. The school has around 650 students. It has not been announced yet what the proceeds will go toward specifically.
