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.
Steve Tasker, Bills. It’s not easy to make a name for yourself playing special teams, but Tasker did that. He played in seven Pro Bowls in 12 years as a Bill, and was named the game’s Most Valuable Player in one of them (1993). Since then, he had a fine career in broadcasting on a national and local level. Others: Alexander Mogilny, Sabres; Lou Piccone, Bills.
