It's hard to say goodbye to a program you've been a part of for so long.
For Williamsville South's Greg Dolan, that time has come.
"I don't think it's really set in yet," Dolan said. "It's been difficult to process."
Dolan and the Billies fell in the Section VI Class A1 final last weekend in a four overtime thriller against West Seneca West.
Many called it the game of the year but the result also meant Dolan's high school career was over.
"There's really nothing you can do, that's just the way the ball bounces," he said about the loss.
"But it's a game that I think most people will remember for a really long time and I'm happy I was able to give fans and spectators that pride and joy in watching us all play."
Dolan went out with a bang becoming a 2,000 career point scorer, just the 17th player in Section VI and Monsignor Martin history to achieve that mark.
He also leaves Williamsville South as a 4-time division champion, a 2-time section champion, a state semifinalist, a New York state Mr. Basketball nominee and leaves as the program's all-time leading scorer and record holder for career rebounds.
"As a freshman to now as a senior, I've grown so much," he said. "Not just in scoring but in assists, rebounding, steals so that's what I really take pride in and those are some of my most prideful and memorable moments too."
Dolan is considered one of if not the best in this year's Western New York class and he already holds several Division-I offers.
As of early March, he's not committed but is hoping to make a decision soon that will be a good fit for his playing and academic career.
"I really want those two to fit what I want and most importantly, where I'm gonna go play and hopefully I can leave a legacy at that college or institution just like I did at South."
