Photo by Mac Shadix Around the first of April, 2017 the Bison coaching staff watched a video about a remote-control blocking dummy. After watching, it was mentioned that it would be great to have one to reduce the chance of injury of two players slamming into each other during practice. The Buffalo Athletic Booster Club decided to take on the project of finding funding within the community. Citizens State Bank stepped up and funded the project for the blocking dummy. On April 6, the dummy was ordered and arrived at BHS on September 1.

While waiting for the dummy to arrive Citizens State Bank employees voted to give the dummy a name. After a tie between Beast and Vault, a new vote was taken to break the tie and Vault is his name. The players will benefit from the safety of the tackling dummy, but Coach Grubbs and Superintendent Lacy Freeman had a lot of fun putting Vault through its paces.
