While he’s busy right now trying to help Hockinson defend their state football title, Peyton Brammer certainly hasn’t forgotten about his other top sport. The strong 6-foot-5, 200-pound rising junior excels at hoops as well and hasn’t made up his mind on which sport he will pursue at the college level. Brammer suited up this summer with the Iron Athletic Sixers 16U squad and he was happy about how things went for him on the hardwood.
“Summer ball went great,” Brammer said. “We traveled to Boise, North Carolina, Chicago, and Vegas – those were our big tournaments. We won the North Carolina and Chicago tournaments and individually I thought I played pretty good – I impressed a lot of coaches.”
Brammer broke down what went well for him on an individual level. “I attacked and got to the rim very well,” Brammer said. “I shot my free throws and pull up mid range at a high percentage. I felt like I got my teammates involved in the games and I created a lot of energy. I need to improve on my 3 point jumpshot, ball handling, and seeing the court better.”
It’s early in terms of college interest for Brammer for hoops, but he has started to hear from Chaminade, Seattle University, and a little from Washington State. He does have an idea what he’d be looking for in a college program though. “I’m looking for a great relationship not just with the head coach but with the whole coaching staff,” Brammer said. “I’m looking for a offense and defense that I can make a impact in. And gym access is a big one for me if I can get into the gym whenever I want that’d be a huge plus.”
The question of course, is will Brammer – who is a standout wide receiver – would go with hoops over football, of which he’s already attracted interest from the likes of Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, Montana, Montana State, and Virginia. “I’m keeping my options open,” Brmmer said. “I enjoy both sports and I would love to play either in college.”
