About Eric Wood

Eric Wood is a former NFL center for the Buffalo Bills. He was an immediate starter, 2 time Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee, and a pro bowler. Eric was selected in the 1st round of the 2009 NFL Draft by the Bills, a monumental achievement for someone who entered college with only one scholarship offer. Making the playoffs in 2017 and ending the Bills’ playoff drought serves as one of Eric’s most memorable moments from his NFL career, and making the Pro Bowl has become one of his proudest professional accomplishments. 

In addition to his principles rooted in family and faith, Eric is also a champion for hard work, dedication, and striving to be the best in all buckets of life. For Eric, these buckets can be broken down into the five f’s to describe his goals with finances, relationships, spirituality, emotions, and hobbies: faith, family, friends, football, and fun. Follow Eric on Twitter and Instagram at @ewood70.
