Hockinson junior shines on court and field

News

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A Hockinson High School student is getting noticed for his skills on both the football field and the basketball court. 

Peyton Brammer is in his junior year of high school and is already getting scouted by colleges for football and basketball. 

He recently set a basketball scoring record for Hockinson and then dropped 50 points days later in a game against Woodland. 

“When you’re feeling it, you’re feeling it,” said Brammer. “I mean, my teammates got me the ball, Coach called some good plays, we were just running out there. It didn’t feel like 50 until I heard it after the game.” 

The two-sport athlete is scoring big now, but Brammer had to overcome a big obstacle earlier in the year. 

“I broke my foot back in football season during the quarterfinals game and I had to sit out the semifinals and state championship,” said Brammer. “It was kind of hard going through that.” 

Brammer was sidelined for 9 weeks. But he wasted no time getting back to speed on the court once his foot had healed and the doctors gave him the green light. 

“A lot of weight was on me and it all kind of fell off, it was kind of a great experience to get it out of the way, you know?” he said. 

Brammer’s coach said the junior worked hard to get back into fighting form.

“Everything he could do, everything the doctors allowed him to do, he did,” said Coach Jon Warner. “As soon as they said he could job, he was trying to get back in shape. Soon as they said full speed, he was flying around the gym.” 

Warner said Brammer is the type who “stayed ready so he didn’t have to get ready.” 

While the Hockinson junior is a star on the field and the court, his coach said he shines in more than just the sporting spotlight. Warner said Brammer is a “better student and a better person than he is a basketball player.”
