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.
Mike Stratton, Bills. He ranks as one of the great linebackers in Bills history. Mike was picked as an All-AFL first-teamer for six straight years, and is on the Bills’ Wall of Fame. He’s best remembered for a hit on Keith Lincoln in the 1964 AFL title game. Others: Shane Conlan, Bills; Isiah Robertson, Bills.
