Braxton Bernard comes from Donaldsonville to powerhouse Madison Prep to finish his high school career. He is a very gifted and physical prospect.
“The strong points in my game are bringing that energy on the defensive side of the court. I can also put up numbers on offense. Just an all-around guy.”
He has had the most interest from the following schools.
“Southern, ULL, Northwestern St. have reached out and showed interest. Looking forward to getting more exposure and recruitment my senior year though.”
Braxton is a very physical player and is looking to add skill to his game to get to the next level.
“I'm working more on my shooting and a lot of footwork. The footwork will help me all around because it will make me quicker and more explosive .There aren’t things I’m bad at, it's just always room to learn and improve.”
He lets the game come to him which is what all good team players do.
“I try to focus on just letting the game come to me. Being aggressive and more consistent with my scoring. Also just getting my teammates more involved. On the defensive of side I just make sure I play hard and the rest just takes care of itself.”
His role will drastically change heading to a new environment.
“I believe my role will change the team because I can be that leader the team needs when we’re down. Plus I love the dirty work. Love playing defensive. Feel like that moves the whole team’s momentum.”
Braxton prides himself on his defense.
“I'm 6'5 and I think my defensive impressed coaches the most. A lot of players don't seem as hungry as I am when it comes to that.”
Braxton must increase his ACT score over the next few months in order to qualify.
“My GPA is a 3.3 and my ACT score is a 17.”
