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.
Andre Reed, Bills. He is Kutztown University’s contribution to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Reed was a fourth-round draft choice in 1985, and he became an immediate starter. Once Jim Kelly showed up a year later, the Bills had a throw-catch combination for more than a decade. Others: Lee Evans, Bills; Chet Mutryn, AAFC Bills; Sherman White, Bills.
