Press Release from the University of Louisville Athletic Department:
ďEric Wood enjoyed a tremendous career in the NFL, playing nine seasons with the Buffalo Bills. Eric always played the game the right way, worked extremely hard and was a tremendous leader of young men. He was a pleasure to coach because he came to work every day willing to get better and was a key component in a great run for the University of Louisville football program. Off the field, Eric was an even better young man and a great ambassador for the university. Iím saddened his NFL career was cut short, but I know the next chapter of his life will be just as successful.
-University of Louisville Head Football coach Bobby Petrino
