Some of the most iconic sports figures originated in Western New York. Whether it’s NBA All-Star Calvin Murphy, who was the shortest player ever to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, or Bills quarterback Jim Kelly who defied all the football betting odds with 44 touchdown passes in the USFL in 1984.

Below All Sports WNY has featured some of our favorite legends which includes Jim Kelly, Thurman Thomas, Ilio DiPaolo, Calvin Murphy, Sal Maglie and others.
