High School Athlete of the Week: Brittany Brayman

This week, we highlight a Hartford High School Senior whose a star in four – count ’em, four! – different sports: Brittany Brayman.

For most high school students, one sport is enough.  For some, two is the most they can handle.  And for a select few, three can be pulled off.  But then there’s Brittany Brayman – an attendee of Hartford High School, East of Queensbury.  Brittany has spent the better part of her high school career as a four sport star in volleyball, basketball, softball, and hockey – where she plays against the boys.  With a schedule like that, there was only one question I could ask to open our conversation:

JB: Four sports and high school.  How do you find time for it all?

BB: I have been playing multiple sports for so long that I have learned to be a great time manager.

JB: Walk us through a typical day for you – any season you’d like.

BB: The winter season is the buisest season for me. I play Basketball and Ice hockey. I go from school to basketball to a 9pm hockey practice.

JB: How do you manage to keep up with school?

BB: I make sure I use all my spare time to do my school work. I have to make sure I keep up on all the work because if you get behind it is too hard to catch up.

JB: Which of your 4 sports is your favorite?

BB: I don’t really have a favorite sport. My favorite is what I am playing at the time.

JB: What is it like playing against the boys in hockey?

BB: I have a lot of fun playing on the boys team. It catches the other teams off guard a lot which can be funny. My teamates are very suportive and protective of me though, so I never have to worry about anything.

JB: What is your best moment on field/court/ice?  What are you most proud of?

BB: My volleyball team went to States this year.  It was the first time our school had ever made it to states.  I am most proud of my abilities to push myself in every sport I play to help my teams be successful.

JB: What do you like most about sports?

BB: My favortie thing about sports is the compitition it brings. I also love all the friends that are made when you play sports – not only teammates, but I have become close with my coaches, also. I know that they will always be there for me.

JB: What’s on you iPod?

BB: I have so much on my iPod. I listen to many different types of music. I listen to country, Hip Hop, Pop and also Classic Rock.

JB: What’s your favorite TV show/movie/book?

BB: My favorite TV show is Criminal Minds, my favorite movie is Miracle and I don’t really have a favorite book but if I was to pick, it would most likley be the Great Gatsby.

JB: What do you like to do with your friends?

BB: I like going to the movies or just hang out together by a fire.

In the fall, Ms. Brayman will be heading to Castleton State College in Vermont where, not shockingly, she’ll be a multi-sport athlete.  Brittany will play softball and hockey as a member of the Spartans, an opportunity she tells us she’s thrilled to have.  Two sports and college?  That’s a challenge to which not many would be able to rise. Given the history here, however, something tells us Brittany Brayman will be fine. Congratulations, and good luck.
