A player to watch over the next two seasons is Jermaine Braumuller, a 6-foot-9, 240-pound forward. Braumuller impressed us recently during Bishop Ford's big victory over Carey High School of Long Island, 71-59.
Braumuller had to battle Carey's key player, Mike Sands, at times during this very competitive game held during the Hope Through Hoops event inside the Hofstra University gym.
Jermaine did a nice job, especially in the second half. Sands is a very good player, headed to Yale after this season. And it's hard to stop Sands. Maybe you can contain him.
But Braumuller did a nice job himself offensively. He scored 12 points, grabbed some key rebounds, and had some blocks which helped Bishop Ford overcome a 37-34 halftime deficit.
According to Bishop Ford assistant coach, Peter Goyco, Jermaine is getting some division one interest in his skills. Remember, Braumuller is a 2008 prospect.
Among the schools Goyco mentioned were Long Island University, St. Francis of New York, and Albany. He is open in his recruiting process and doesn't have a leader.
