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.
Billy Shaw, Bills. The offensive lineman came out of Georgia Tech as a 14th-round draft pick. He was all-AFL seven times, and helped the Bills win two championships. Shaw is the only member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame who never played a game in the NFL. Others: Jerry Crafts, Bills; Mike Thompson, Bandits; Ed Ellis, UB.
