Students at Prairie Wind Elementary School in Cheyenne are asking Buffalo Bills quarterback — and former University of Wyoming standout — Josh Allen to return to the Cowboy State in March.
The students asked Allen via video to join them for Read Across America Week which begins on March 2.
“If you are able to come, you will have a chance to meet your number one fans and the coolest kids around,” said one student in the video.
Another student, donning a Buffalo Bills hat, asked the gymnasium full of students who they all loved.
“Josh Allen!” the students yelled followed by an eruption of screams and cheers.
Principal Lisa Weigel told Buffalo TV station WKBW that the students chose Allen because he’s a great role model.
“Our kids really know how to work hard, they have an all in attitude and it’s something [Josh Allen] approaches in everything he does so we couldn’t think of a better role model,” Weigel said. “Come back to where everything started for you, come back and share with students the incredible things you’ve accomplished due to your hard work.”
