After a great fall season ended with three Section II football teams playing for state championships, we are now fully shifted into the winter season. Couldn't you tell by all the snow this week?

With that said, we have our first winter ESPN Radio 104.5 Athlete of the Week. It's Albany Academy senior guard Rory Flaherty. Last Friday, Flaherty had 20 points in a 76-65 win over Catholic Central. He had five three-pointers in the win.

Academy plays St. Mary's Academy tomorrow in a non-Section II matchup.
