BRATTLEBORO — Just a couple of days after Patrick Mahomes rallied the Chiefs past the Titans in the AFC Championship game, Ryan Kelly was busy leading a comeback of his own.

The Bellows Falls guard scored a team-high 17 points during a come-from-behind victory over Windsor, which ultimately earned him Brattleboro Reformer Athlete of the Week honors for Jan. 19-25.

"Your determination is endless every time you step on the court. Hoops is your passion," wrote JoAnna Dent Dickerson on her online ballot. She was one of 143 people who voted for the senior.

Kelly joins fellow Terriers Isaac Wilkinson, Griffin Waryas, Halle Dickerson and Taylor Goodell as winners this winter. Brattleboro's Rachael Rooney and Hinsdale's Dylan Harden are also in the running for the Marina's second prize.

The nominees for the Jan. 26 to Feb. 1 athlete of the week are shown below. In order to vote, simply go to and "like" your choice.
