All-star bling

Brandson Bragg receives his all-American game jersey from his coach, Joe Dale Cary.

Crandall senior Branson Bragg received his official jersey in a ceremony last Thursday at the high school for his participation in the Under Armour All-America football game in Orlando, Fla.

Bragg, a 6’4”, 295-pound lineman for the Pirates, will join the top 100 high school athletes from around the country on Thursday, Jan. 3, 2019. The game will be broadcast on ESPN2.

The presentation was part of the selection tour for all the athletes taking part in the game.

The high school cafeteria was packed with fellow players, coaches, family, students, and administrators to cheer on Bragg.

Bragg has committed to play football at Stanford. In addition to making top grades, Bragg is also jazz pianist in the Crandall jazz band.

He was recruited by several of the nation’s top football programs.
