From the Gridiron To Games, Buffalo Bills Star Running Back Willis McGahee To Challenge All Comers in Halo 2
November 12, 2004
During his time in the NFL, Buffalo Bills' star running back Willis McGahee has encountered some of the toughest competitors the gridiron has to offer; but as every Halo fan knows, it takes more than a helmet and some shoulder pads to declare yourself a Master Chief.
