Welcome to this week’s breakdown of the High School Sports Beat, brought to you by Alfred State College. Many thanks to Alfred State College for joining the Sports Beat family, and helping to bring weekly coverage of Section V High School Sports to broadcast on 13 WHAM.
Now, here’s your behind the scenes look at the production, from the producer and the shows many contributors. It’s week 3 of the season, and the fall slate is in full swing…
We start this week with a story from the summer, and a baseball travel team with a message. The Greece Tornadoes went the extra mile this year to honor the fallen – by wearing the names of soldiers, who gave their lives in defense of our country, on the backs of their jerseys.
13 WHAM’s Matt Trabold joins us for the Dunkin High School Notebook. Matt and Dave Yates talk Section V soccer this week, including impressive starts for the East Rochester boys and the Pittsford Sutherland Girls…
Kyle O’Gara is up next with this week’s Making the Grade nominee… and, as always, if you have a candidate for our Making the Grade segment, send us an email to MTG@RocSportsNow.com or fill-in our contact form. This week, we honor Sam Lyon from Churchville-Chili Cross Country and Track.
The Section V Spotlight is up next, highlighting some former Section V stars, doing some big things at the next level, like RH’s Jared Gerbino at Dartmouth and current Section V Standouts, like Mason Ferrara of HF-L.
Our top story of the week is on Uprep Football, and it’s sophomore starting QB – Clyde Davis Jr. The Griffins, led by Head Coach Kala Gause, have gotten off to a 4 – 0 start. They have a lot of weapons on offense. Davis, in his first year on the Varsity squad, has stepped up to be an on-field leader, with a bright future. And Davis has done it all, despite a birth defect – born with two fingers on his left hand, but not defined by or limited in any way.
And that’s a wrap on week 3 of Season 9! Be sure to check out the full episode– and tune in Every Saturday night on 13 WHAM after the late news, and on Sundays at Noon.

We leave you this week, with an Insider weekly feature – looking back at some of our stories from the past 8 years. From September 13, 2014 – we cover what has become a yearly tradition for Pittsford Mendon boys soccer – the naming of a player to wear #9, in honor of Todd Pelino, who wore #9 for Mendon, and died tragically in the 9/11 attack.
