Hobart College senior Ryan Moore will spend his first year after graduation as an intern in the Buffalo Bills Community Relations Department. Moore is a four-year member of the Statesmen cross country team and graduated on Sunday, May 14, with a degree in economics.
Moore will work with Preston Teague ’02, who is the Director of Community Relations and Youth Football with the Bills. Throughout the offseason, training camp, and regular season, the Bills work with several partners to make a difference in the lives of people living in Western New York. Teague’s office has turned the focus on fitness, health & safety, military appreciation, and community support.
Moore, a native of Williamsville, N.Y., has been a lifelong Bills fan and is looking to turn his internship into a career in professional sports.
“Being a native of Buffalo, I am excited to have the opportunity to connect a historic franchise like the Buffalo Bills to a community I care deeply about,” Moore said. “I look forward to learning as much as possible about the sports industry during my time with the Bills with hopes of advancing my career within professional sports.”
Moore ran in 32 meets in his four-years as a Statesman. He logged a season-best 8k time of 30:04 at the CCOC Championships this fall. At the Block H Dinner last month, Moore was presented the Joe Abraham Prize for outstanding service to the athletic programs at Hobart. He has been a student-worker in the equipment room for the past four years.
Teague was a four-year member of the Hobart lacrosse team. He started his career with the Bills in 2003 as a customer service representative. In 2008, Teague moved to the Community Relations Department where he served as the manager of community relations and youth football for three years. He was promoted to his current role in March of 2013.
