POST CEREMONY UPDATE: (October, 19, 2012)
Brotherly bond carries Wolfleys into Hall of Fame
Ron Wolfley listened to his big brother, Craig, about everything and sought his sage wisdom on the eve of his first training camp with the NFL St. Louis Cardinals in 1985.
The nerves of being a rookie got to Ron and for the first time he was petrified of failing, so he picked up the phone and called Craig.
“You got any advice for me?” he asked.
Craig paused for several seconds and said, “Yeah Ronnie: Shut your mouth, respect everybody and pick a fight with the toughest guy on the team.”
That’s exactly what he did and 27 years later they shared a special moment Wednesday night. The Wolfley brothers, along with 12 others, are a part of the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame’s Class of 2012, an event held at the Buffalo Hyatt Regency.
