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.
Greg Sanders, St. Bonaventure. He came out of a Washington, D.C. high school (coached by John Thompson) and became the Bonnies’ all-time leading scorer. Greg was a standout on the 1977 Bona team that won the NIT. His number has been retired. Others: Will Grant, Bills; Mike Montler, Bills.
