Rough start

Regular readers of the Buffalo News Sports section are used to articles in which Bucky Gleason shamelessly fawns over local professional athletes. His hockey column might as well be known as a shrine to Patrick Kane. I was not surprised to see Keith McShea mention that he expected Jim Kelly's nephew to be the next Ron Jaworski a week ago. Kelly's nephew Chad is the new quarterback at St. Joes. I hope the kid has a good high school career. He should not be judged by one game. But I have to admit, I laughed today when I read this in the recap of the St. Joes-Aquinas game played last night...

QB Chad Kelly was 13 of 23 for 165 yards, one TD and three interceptions.

Here's a thought: Why don't you wait until after you see him play one down before you put him in the WNY sports Hall of Fame?

***(Update: I just wanted to add, the younger Kelly ended up having a great season at St. Joes in 2010. He impressed everyone with his running ability as well as his throwing ability. He had a rough first game, but bounced back nicely. It must be tough being the nephew of a Buffalo Bills legend, but he handles it well.)
