We are counting from 99 to 0 to determine who’s the best Buffalo athlete to wear each number. It’s Buffalo Sports By The Numbers here on Buffalo Sports Page.
We’ll have a new number and athlete every day this summer. Each story also includes reaction from the Buffalo Sports Page staff, and a way to catch up on numbers you’ve missed.
After every 10 numbers, a Sylvester & Peck On Sports podcast will feature Budd Bailey and the guys reacting to the selection. The 89 to 80 edition has just been posted.
Howard Ballard, Bills. He wasn’t really as big as a house, but at 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, he earned that as a nickname. The 11th-round pick was something of a project as an offensive tackle when he was drafted out of Alabama A&M. He made two Pro Bowls before going to the Seahawks. Others: Marcellus Wiley, Bills, Jay Thorimbert, Bandits; Jonas Jennings, Bills.
