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.
Jeff Yeates, Bills. The defensive lineman played for his hometown team after suiting up for Cardinal O’Hara in Tonawanda. He spent parts of three seasons with the Bills, and then had a long stay with Atlanta. This is the first number, counting up numerically, that has never been worn by a Sabre. Others: Ervin Parker, Bills; Dick Cunningham, Bills.
