Coach Bob Caswell said Brayden exemplifies what an athlete should be: he gives his all and is respectful to his coaches, parents and teammates. Caswell said when Brayden comes to practice, he is focused on getting better and his attitude rubs off on his teammates, encouraging them to take practice seriously. Brayden isn’t afraid to ask questions when doesn’t understand something, which in turns allows others to feel comfortable asking questions. Caswell said this action of asking questions, helps guide other players to perform their best because others may not want to ask the question. Brayden uses this trait to encourage players to practice, develop their specific skills, and perform well under pressure. For his leadership and commitment to the team, Brayden was chosen as the middle school boys golf athlete of the month for September 2023.
“He works on the things he is taught and will stay late for additional help when he is not understanding the new instructions. He works extremely hard at his golf game. This is the second year with me, and he has improved tremendously over this season. He has been a great influence on the team members by always having a positive attitude and enthusiasm for the game of golf. This is the sign of a good leader.”Bob Caswell, PRA MS Boys Golf Coach
