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.
Harry Jacobs, Bills. He was the middle linebacker for the great unit of the Bills’ glory days in the mid-1960s, teaming with John Tracey and Mike Stratton. They played 62 games together, a pro football record. Harry played in all ten of the American Football League’s seasons. Other: Richie Incognito, Bills.
