DEXTER, N.Y. (WWNY) -
Our inaugural Athlete of The Week for the 2018-2019 school year is General Brown's new starting quarterback, Jake Heller.
In General Brown's first game, against Syracuse-area Southern Hills, Jake ran for 99 yards, completed four of seven passes for 134 yards, found the end zone for a touchdown and four two point conversions and threw for another two point conversion.
Consider that, while considering what Jake told us: “I’m just going to keep trying to get better and better, week by week.” Should be an exciting year.
Jake is the 7 News - Watertown Savings Bank North Country Athlete Of The Week for September 7, 2018.
