BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — For the second time, a fan will be inducted into the BFLO Hall of Fame Experience’s “Fan Wall of Fame.”

Following the 2018 induction of the late Ezra Castro, known to most western New Yorkers as “Pancho Billa,” “Bills Elvis” will join the Wall of Fame.

“Bills Elvis,” whose real name is John R. Lang, has been a season ticket holder since 1992.

“He created the Elvis costume, put a ‘squish the fish’ on the guitar and he won the bet and was featured in nearly every game after that.  If you watch the Bills games on television or go to the games yourself, no doubt you have seen Bills Elvis,” the BFlo Hall of Fame experience wrote.

On June 3, Lang will be honored at Town Ballroom during the “Circle the Wagons with Chris Berman and The Twang Gang Band” event.

 “A huge thank you to everyone for the past 27 years that I have had fun with at the games and to all Bills fans for helping me to continue the great tradition. I have plans to be at every home game and eventually the Super Bowl!” Lang said.

Tickets can be purchased here. Prices range from $30-$75.
