RocJocks: Rochester's Great Athletes

Whether they started here or ended up here, Rochester has been home to some of the most memorable names in sports. To honor their accomplishments, we've compiled a list of names in a database we've dubbed “RocJocks.” It’s not a definitive ranking of the all-time greats. Rather it’s a cross section of men and women, athletes and coaches, past and present, with ties to the Rochester area.

Each week we’ll add another name to the compendium. Whose name should we add next? Send an email to with your suggestions.
