The University of Buffalo football program is resorting to a modern-day fundraiser in order to pick up some new equipment for the team’s locker room. This week, the Bulls announced that they have launched a crowd-funding campaign for the program. The goal is to raise $5,000 for the upgrade.
“We are looking to raise money for a great addition to our weight room. We would like to purchase a machine called the Jacobs Ladder. Buffalo doesn’t have the friendliest weather to run outside all the time, so we are trying to accommodate for that,” the crowdfunding campaign reads.
“This machine will give our players a unique option to get the same kind of conditioning as running would. It’s designed for a total body workout that would challenge our players and help them improve. No longer would our players have to stress about finding a place to do cardio on their own in the winter.”
It continues, “We are the Football Strength and Conditioning Staff for the University at Buffalo. Our job is to make sure the athletes have the highest level of mental and physical preparation for the field of play. We spend more time with the athletes than any other coaches year round. We also take responsibility for their passion, toughness and excitement on a daily basis.”

Buffalo currently sits at an impressive 7-1 on the season and first-place in the Mid-American Conference East division. The Bulls are undefeated in conference play. Next up for Buffalo is a meeting with the Miami Ohio Redhawks on Tuesday, Oct. 30.
