The decision will be discussed for the rest of the season.
There was a power shift in the American Football Conference on a stormy Sunday night in Kansas City.
Josh Allen knew the questions would be coming.
OLEAN — On Saturday, the St. Bonaventure hockey team did something for the first time in more than 18 months: it played a game.
Two of items of local interest, one a place, the other a person:
PORT ALLEGANY, Pa. — We’re closer to the end of the high school football regular season than we are to the start.
With a 17-game schedule, it’s impossible to divide the season into quarters.
ORCHARD PARK — It seems crazy to criticize a team that just won 40-0, pitched its second shutout in three games and has put up 118 points in its last three starts.
The performance wasn’t exactly what she had hoped … but the experience was priceless.
The legacy remains, 41 years after he retired, 12 of them following his passing.
ORCHARD PARK — For Bills fans it was nothing more complicated than they had to see it to be convinced.
ORCHARD PARK — Well, it took three games but the Bills have seemingly found their 2020 mojo.
(EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the second of a two-part series with Ron Rivera, coach of the Washington Football Team, and his long-time relationship with members of the Bills organization.)
The Big 30's only remaining undefeated New York football teams — Randolph and Salamanca — hit the road on Saturday to put their 3-0 records to test.
(EDITOR’S NOTE: This is the first of a two-part series with Ron Rivera, coach of the Washington Football Team, and his long-time relationship with two key members of the Bills coaching staff, head coach Sean McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.)
After all these years, Stan Harris is still modest about his coaching accomplishments.
What a difference a week makes.
Is it possible a team can win by five touchdowns and not play its best game?
There was a time when the Bills unquestioned rival was Miami.
They have had four days to think about it … rationalize how they managed to let the air out of a sold-out Highmark Stadium and a regional fan base.
SMETHPORT, Pa. — Last year, the Smethport football team left no doubt over who ruled the District 9 Small School North.
I know, I know … “It’s only one game.”
ORCHARD PARK — Let’s make this perfectly clear at the outset.
The enthusiasm hasn’t been at this level since the Bills went to four straight Super Bowls back in the early 1990s.
ORCHARD PARK — Maj. Matthew Blue was understandably hesitant.
SMETHPORT, Pa. — Through two weeks, the Smethport football team has played as advertised.
SALAMANCA — From 2009-2020, the words “Coach Whitcher” adorned the outside of the press box that overlooked the football field at Veterans Memorial Park.
So the Bills’ love affair with Dawson Knox continues.
Could we just pump the brakes a bit on celebrating the Bills’ 19-0 victory over the Packers Saturday afternoon at Highmark Stadium in the preseason finale?
Stuffed in Monday’s Times Herald will be the Football Edition … it should be the 52nd, but after starting in 1970, thanks to Covid-19, there was no issue last fall.
Mark Schmidt remembers it well.
ST. BONAVENTURE — As the youngest of four boys, Kyle Lofton didn’t exactly have it easy growing up.
Josh Haskell wants to be the latest member of the Hughes and Haskell family tree to become a Division I athlete.
It’s been an interesting week for the Bills, so let’s start with the easy part, Josh Allen’s new contract, before we get to the public relations nightmare that is the request (demand?) for a new, taxpayer-funded stadium:
BRADFORD, Pa. — The potential for irony was hard to ignore, but we’ll get to that.
BRADFORD, Pa. -- Nearly 50 years later, it’s become a link between past and present.
OLEAN — It could be argued that today’s Championship Flight semifinals of the 85th annual Southwestern New York-Northwestern Pennsylvania Men’s Amateur Golf Tournament at Bartlett Country Club is one of the most interesting ever.
Some reflections on the Tokyo Summer Olympics counting down to Sunday’s closing ceremonies:
OLEAN — A year ago, almost to the day, Chuck Crist was walking the course at Bartlett Country Club watching his son, Scott, compete in the Shootout of Former Men’s Amateur Champions.
It hasn’t been a satisfying Olympiad for the United States.
One day earlier, the most pressing matter in his life was, of all things, a can drive.
Bills fans haven’t been this optimistic about a season since Buffalo went to four straight Super Bowls back in the early 1990s.
It all began yesterday when 88 players reported to the Bills’ Highmark Stadium offices in preparation for the start of Training Camp this morning at the ADPRO Center.
OLEAN — If there was any question about the viability of the New York-Pennsylvania Corporate Cup Soccer Showcase, it was answered last August when, with the calendar running out and the specter of Covid-19 only partially lifted, founders Kris Linderman and Dave Talbot staged their fourth ren…
In some ways, New York’s high school football teams are getting back to normal.
Starting Monday, through two weeks from Sunday, the Twin Tiers’ most popular country clubs will host a pair of high-profile golf tournaments, one professional, the other amateur.
OLEAN — The clock struck noon on an otherwise uneventful Thursday, July 1.
Some thoughts on an interesting weekend in sports:
Michael Miller has taught martial arts locally for over two decades.
When the announcement came, my thoughts went to Martha Ruether.
