SCOTTSVILLE, N.Y. - A farm family has welcomed Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan to western New York by including his image in a giant corn maze.

Members of the Stokoe family tell WGRZ-TV in Buffalo that they're avid Bills fans and wanted to make the team's new coach fell welcomed. So the family cut out Ryan's profile in their cornfield in Scottsville, south of Rochester. "The Buffalo Bills are beloved by the farm and its guests, and with the addition of coach Rex Ryan, there is an excitement and energy that is elevated from previous years," Suzanne Stokoe said.

The maze is open to the public this week today through Friday.

Ryan told reporters at Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College in nearby Pittsford that at first he didn't believe the maze was real. But after visiting the farm Monday, Ryan said, "Yeah, it's real."-- AP
