The Norton Medal was established in 1922 by then UB Chancellor Charles Norton. It is the highest honor bestowed by the University at Buffalo and honors someone who personifies civic patriotism and vivifies public service in the eyes of the citizens of Buffalo. 

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Doug Marrone, Buffalo Bills Head Coach
Q: How do you balance it out in a rookie minicamp when you have guys like Sammy and the high picks that need to assimilate in to the team and you also have guys trying out for a spot?
A: I’ll say the same thing, and I’ve said this every year I’ve been in the NFL since my first year. I really don’t care how you got here. I don’t care if you were drafted. I don’t care if you were signed in an open tryout. I don’t care if you’re a seventh round draft pick, I really don’t care. All I care about is what you’re going to do now that you’re here. That’s the one thing I control. I control who plays and who doesn’t play. If you want to play, do it right there. All that draft pick stuff and all those other things, that’s all for the media, that’s’ all for you guys. You can talk about that all you want, but I tell them that flat out every year I’ve been in the league and I truly believe that. I don’t really care. Just because you’re a second round pick or a first round pick, it doesn’t mean you’re going to automatically play. We’ve got guys that have been on this team that are fighting for their lives and fighting for a job. That’s just the way it is. If we start playing people based on where they’re drafted, you’re going to lose a lot of games.
