Bryson has fielded phone calls from MLB scouts and, although it hasn't translated into draft interest yet, he knows that's something he can hang his hat on. He only hopes he can parlay that into increasing interest to get his shot at the pros one day.
"Just knowing that I got a phone call, at least I can say they were looking," he said. "I've just got to keep working hard and hope something great happens. But who knows? Something great could happen tomorrow or I could get hurt walking out the door. You just don't know. You've just got to have a great attitude about it, give it all you've got every single day and don't 'what if' yourself. That will eat you alive for the rest of your life."
Garry believes his son has what it takes to make the leap.
"He's got as good a chance as anybody else," he said. "There have been guys talking about him to his coaches already. Whether or not they'll pull the trigger and draft him, you don't know. I'm sure the size has something to do with it, they like bigger guys in the major leagues. But there's nothing they can do that he can't do."
Although he's still a long way away, the MLB is just as big of a dream for Braxton as it is for his older brother.
"That's a life goal for me, to make it there," he said. "Yeah, everybody keeps doubting me because I'm 5-foot-7. But I use that as motivation to move past them and prove them wrong. Anything's possible if you put your heart and soul into it. It's something I really want to do."
