poll: Who is the Best Athlete from Hudson-Oakham?

Who is the Best Athlete from Hudson-Oakham?


Another day, and another set of great athletes from Central Massachusetts. Today we take you alphabetically from Hudson to Oakham, and choosing one star above the rest will be a challenge.

The list includes Wilbert Robinson, a Hall of Fame catcher that played 17 years in the majors. Robinson is also credited with being the first catcher to crouch just behind the batter, rather than a few feet back, as was custom in the late 1800s. Another baseball great on our list is Mark Fidrych. The ever entertaining Fidrych captured America's imagination on his way to the 1976 American League Rookie of the Year award.

If you're not a baseball buff, you have a few solid choices as well. Prince Amukamara was born in Leominster, and starred at the University of Nebraska, earning All American honors. He was selected in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the New York Giants, and won the Super Bowl with New York last season.

As much potential as Amukamara has, he has a long way to go before he match the resume of Milford's Howie Long. Before he became popular on the Fox NFL Pregame Show, Long starred with the Oakland Raiders as one of the most feared defensive ends in all of football. Long earned a spot on the NFL's 1980s All Decade Team and numerous other individual accolades.

Finally, Mike Burns played on the United States' 1992 Olympic soccer team and 1998 World Cup squad. Now the General Manager of the New England Revolution, Burns is one of the most recognizable soccer figures in New England history.

So now, let your opinion be known; Who is the best athlete from Hudson-Oakham?
