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.
Bob Kalsu, Bills. Kalsu made the ultimate sacrifice for his country during the War in Vietnam. The All-American for Oklahoma was a starting guard as a rookie for the Bills in 1968. Then he joined the U.S. Army. Kalsu was killed in action on July 21, 1970. Others: Maxim Afinogenov, Sabres; Willie Parker, Bills; Dusty Zeigler, Bills.
