BUFFALO, N.Y. -- His video now has more than 2 million hits on YouTube, and now the so-called "Trick Shot Quarterback" is preparing to work out with the Buffalo Bills.

Alex Tanney, who was starting quarterback for the Monmouth College Fighting Scots of NCAA Division III, turned down an offer to work out with the Pittsburgh Steelers to make the trip to Western New York.

Tanney announced he will attend the Bills 3-day rookie camp, which begins May 11.

He was considered on the bubble for the recent NFL Draft but was left out. His stats from college are impressive: his 157 touchdown passes puts him first in the country, while he also broke several other Division III records.

"I'm from a small school," he told the Associated Press. "And the only thing I've ever really wanted was an opportunity to get into a camp. And now I have that in Buffalo, so I'm anxious to get there and compete for a spot."

Associated Press sports writer John Wawrow noted that Tanney is "aware that the (Bill's) No. 3 position is unfilled behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick and backup Tyler Thigpen."
