The city catholic schools squared off for their championship as they do not partake in the State playoff tournament here. 8pm game that started late due to the first game, and of course had to stay to the end to get the celebrating shots. This game brought back some old memories...OK, not that old.

Set up...read an article months ago about a kid from Buffalo who was impressive, marked it on my calendar to go see him - then didn't. Tonight accidently found out it was him playing, he did "OK" I guess, 170 yards rushing with 3 TD's and then 191 passing with 2 more TD's leading his team to the championship. By far one of the best High School QB's I've seen, and he's a junior.

#1 - There's a lot of hype surrounding this kid comparing him to a Hall of Fame QB...

#2 - This kid was eyeing him up playing safety...and yes, that is a Buffalo Bills logo as the game is played at Rich Stadium annually.

#3 - QB's always get the attention, nice rolling out move, he was good on the run...

#4 - Was in this position to get the barking out of signals with a pic in my head I wanted, which did not happen so got him running the option. #12 fits him.

#6 - ...and this is how I found out I was covering the kid I had read about, his uncle is Hall of Fame Bills Quarterback Jim Kelly (he admits his nephew is more athletic than he was at that age so I hear). Went to shoot just outside the 25 yard mark and heard over the loud speaker "Montana to kick off", kind of funny since they're wearing 49 type uniforms, but then hear a voice behind me saying "and Marino to receive the kick". Of course enjoying the joke turned around to see the guy on the right in the background, which is the local MiLB teams color commentator and had a part in the movie "The Natural". Seeing him all summer turn and say hello seeing Jimbo standing there as well, of course the light bulb went off of who was wearing #12 and more of that Marino/Montana joke sank in. Oh, and who is #89 that seems to be randomly thrown in there - that would be Jim's ex-teammate Steve Tasker's son.

So, in an 0-8 season here in the Buffalo area - where the hockey team isn't making it much easier - least we can remember the good ol' days and see a little celebrating on the field from those that came to a city to play a game, but stayed to raise a family.

Good photos, but your watermark is very distracting.

Good, that's the point.
