Police say the victim, Ray Leach, 18, was transported to Strong Memorial in Rochester with a hand laceration after the Saturday afternoon incident and was treated and released. The stabbing occurred at his home at Ross Street. Leach told police the person who attacked him was his neighbor and classmate, Antwan Odom.
With the help of a gritty performance from running back Alex Rood and some excellent coaching adjustments from Brennan Briggs, the Blue Devils battled their way through another win. With Leach suspended for unspecified reasons, Rood barreled his way to yards and three touchdowns on 22 carries and the Batavia defense came up big in the fourth quarter as the Blue Devils wore down the Bulldogs for a win. Rood scored on rushes of 15, 3 and 3 yards and Batavia ran for a total of yards and Batavia also got a big game out of quarterback Ethan Biscaro but it was the defense that made its presence felt late.
Fittingly, on Friday morning, the Oatkan Knights athletes of the past were honored in becoming the fourth class of the Le Roy Oatka Knights Sports Hall of Fame and the constant theme among all of the inductees was pride, not just in playing sports at Le Roy, but being a part of the community as a whole and what it represents.

But in looking at the numbers more closely, I've come to a hypothesis that the NFL's potential talent pool will not be drained anytime soon, and that if concussions were the only reason for youth football's decline, then one of the alternatives -- lacrosse, which is third behind football and hockey in its participants' concussion rate -- wouldn't be the fastest growing youth sport in the United States. In fact, I would go so far as to say that worry about concussions is having little effect on what sports kids are playing -- that future prospects, in and out of the sports, are driving participation. There's no doubt that football, not without reason, is taking a lot of hits no pun intended because of its head injury risk.
