Many Bills players head home in the offseason to rest, catch up with family and train for the upcoming season. For Bills wide receiver Gabriel Davis, this year's homecoming was one to remember.

Davis received the key to Sanford, Fla., his hometown, in honor of his four-touchdown performance against Kansas City in the Divisional Round. The wide receiver set an NFL record for most touchdown receptions in a playoff game.

In addition, the anniversary of the game, January 23 will also be known as Gabriel Davis Day in Sanford.

Davis told those at the City Commission meeting that he wants to inspire people around him.

"It means a lot to me," Davis said per Fox 35 Orlando. "I just want to be a motivation to the youth and be able to encourage them to live out their dreams and do what they can do."

The wide receiver grew up in Florida, attended high school at Seminole High School and played collegiately at UCF.

Davis is now living out his dream of being an NFL wide receiver and gave some advice on how to achieve success.

"Don't point the finger at anybody when it comes to your dreams and why you're not where you're supposed to be," Davis said to Fox 35 Orlando. "As long as you put that all on yourself, I feel like you'll always be successful."
