Silver Creek resident was member of 1958 UB Bulls

Editor's Note: As the University at Buffalo Bulls football team played in Saturday's Famous Idaho Potato Bowl, I thought back to 2009 when I sat at Aunt Millie's Restaurant in Silver Creek with George "Skip" Maue for more than two hours. Maue was a member of the 1958 UB team which declined an invitation to the Tangerine Bowl because two African American players were not allowed to participate. Maue passed away May 5, 2011. And though I can't talk to him about this year's Bulls team, he was in my thoughts Saturday. Following is the story which was published on Jan. 11, 2009.
