Dan Liburd, a member of the Buffalo Bills strength and conditioning staff, is on the list to appear on Monday night's episode of “American Ninja Warrior,” an NBC spokesperson confirmed.
Liburd was one of the Western New Yorkers who attempted to qualify recently at the Philadelphia tryouts for the program.
NBC said Dave Kozak, a 69-year old Vietnam veteran from Buffalo who also tried out for the program in Philadelphia, didn’t make it into the episode.
A two-hour edition of “American Ninja Warrior” starts at 9 p.m. Monday on Channel 2, the local NBC affiliate.
According to the Bills website, Liburd has been with the Bills for six years, oversees the team’s nutrition and dietary program and assists with supervising the athletes with strength and conditioning.
