On this episode of Talking Buffalo Podcast Patrick Moran is joined by former Buffalo Bills tight end Butch Rolle for a fascinating conversation spanning Butch’s life and career as well as his charitable foundation that has a bowling event going on in West Seneca this weekend.
A former seventh-round draft of the Bills out of Michigan State in 1986, Rolle became famous in Buffalo and around the NFL as the guy who “all he does is catch touchdowns.” Rolle once caught 14 consecutive passes for touchdowns. Butch describes growing up in Florida, never playing organized football until 10th grade but still becoming a big-time recruit, why he decided to attend Michigan State for college, what it was like being drafted by Buffalo—a team that stunk in 1986, the process of the team growing into a contender and much more.
They also end with a TBP Fun Fact Finale, where we learned a ton of cool tidbits about Butch including the toughest teammate he ever went against, his favorite non-Bills player in football and who was better between Barry Sanders and Emmitt Smith.
