Tonight, we take you to Boyle County for our Student-Athlete of the Week.
It’s Brayden West of Boyle County High School. West is a freshman and will be a featured member of the Rebel baseball team. He’ll have a great presence on the mound this spring and also hopes to play third base.
Inside the classroom, he excels academically. But it’s on the diamond, specifically on the bump, where he’s at his best.
West is excited to get to work with Boyle County but he remains active in travel ball.
During the summer, Brayden plays for the Noochie Varner Stars out of Georgetown, and his 14U team has had a great deal of success outside of the Bluegrass State.
“Last year we went down to Florida and played the Grand Slam World Series and beat some of the best teams in the country. We play up in Indianapolis, Indiana, Ohio, really everywhere. We win a lot of tournaments, win a lot of rings. Practice almost every day of the week, working out,” West said.
