Two days after leading the Buffalo Bills to a dramatic last-second victory over the Minnesota Vikings, Bills quarterback Kyle Orton faced a different crowd: a class of preschoolers.

Orton visited the Doodle Bugs class in Orchard Park on Tuesday and read the book, “Bunny Cakes” by Rosemary Wells. Albion native Kathleen Barleben teaches at Doodle Bugs, where Orton’s daughter is a student. She said Orton’s visit was “very cool!”

He appeared at the school as part of Read for the Record, a nationwide literacy event. Barleben is the former Kathleen Adducci. She married Justin Barleben this past summer.
