Downey named AGR Player of the Year
(March 29, 2007) — Fairport’s Kyle Downey
should have known big things were ahead for him during the high school
basketball season when he grew three inches after his sophomore year.
A taller and stronger Downey scored 23 points a game in an expanded role
for Fairport this past winter, and led the Red Raiders to the Class AA
boys state tournament semifinals.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound junior shooting guard, largely a spot-up shooter
as a sophomore, is the 2006-07 All-Greater Rochester Boys Basketball
Player of the Year.
Meet all of the Super 15 in Friday’s editions of the Democrat and
Chronicle, including Downey, who also helped Fairport repeat as Section V
Class AAA champions under AGR Coach of the Year Scott Fitch.
Kevin Downey, Kyle’s older brother, was the 2001 co-AGR Player of the Year
as a senior guard at Livonia.
