YouTube QB Tanney lands invite to Bills camp

Associated Press Published: May 4, 2012

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A five-minute YouTube video made quarterback Alex Tanney an overnight sensation for his uncanny accuracy.

Now the Division III Monmouth College (Ill.) product will provide the Buffalo Bills a chance to see whether he has a future in the NFL. After being passed up in the NFL draft last weekend, Tanney accepted an invitation to participate in the Bills' three-day rookie minicamp that opens May 11.

Tanney is among the most curious prospects heading to camp after the 6-foot-4, 220-pound player created a buzz last year in the self-titled "Trick Shot Quarterback" video. In it, Tanney threw footballs from across the court and swished them into basketball nets and even banged a pass off the crossbar of an upright from 50 yards out — from his knees.
