Congratulations to Lake City's Avery Waddington for being voted SBLive’s WaFd Bank Idaho High School Athletes of the Week for Nov. 13-Nov. 18!

The winter basketball season has barely started - and the 6-foot-3 Montana signee is already making clutch plays in the final seconds. Waddington sank a key 3-pointer with 38.5 seconds to go, then followed up with a blocked shot on the other end to preserve Lake City's 49-43 non-league victory over reigning 5A semifinalist Boise.

Waddington collected 84.8% of the overall vote, well ahead of runner-up Jace Judy, of Hillcrest football.
