Marty Oliveri and the Bishop Fallon Football Coach, Sal Amico, keep a secret about courage. The column date is June 3rd, 1971. Phil Ranallo pays tribute to a Special Young Man.


Marty Oliveri was my Bishop Fallon High School classmate.  All of the Fallon kids from North Buffalo  would wait for the number nine bus on the corner of Parkside and Hertel.  The O’Sullivans, the McClearys, the Longs, Charlie Ciotta and more.  We would let several buses go by just so we could talk and have fun. Marty started coming later and later and we didn’t know why.  My fathers column tells the story. Marty was a friend to all and he will never be forgotten.
