BRATTLEBORO — Twenty-two years after Major League Baseball pitchers Tom Glavine and Greg Maddux agreed that “chicks dig the longball” in a Nike ad, it became apparent that guys do too.

Hinsdale’s Aidan Davis, who hit a no-doubt homer against Mascenic, received 42 male votes and 150 total to earn Brattleboro Reformer Athlete of the Week honors.

“He’s going to be really good when he’s a senior,” said one fan during Thursday’s playoff game.

Davis is now in the running for a $25 gift certificate from the Marina along with Leland & Gray star Ava LeCours, Bellows Falls slugger Colton Baldasaro, Brattleboro power hitter Jack Pattison, Bellows Falls softball great Taryn Darrell, and Leland & Gray standout Hannah Landers.

The seventh batch of Athlete of the Week nominees for the spring season are shown below. In order to vote, simply go to www.facebook.com/brattlebororeformer and “like” your choice.
