Monday, December 18th, 2006 -Garrett Branisel helped lead the Naperville Central Redhawks to the Class AA State Championship last season. As a Junior, Garrett played a vital role in a dangerous lineup and provided solid defensive skills at 2nd base. As the 2007 spring season quickly approaches Garrett is busy preparing for another title run.
Garrett quickly established himself as solid player with great fundamentals during his Junior season. Garrett’s hard work and motivation has made one of the top Middle Infielders in the state. While providing Head Coach Bill Seiple with excellent fielding skills at 2B, he has become quite a threat at the plate.
Finishing the 2006 spring season with a .338 AVG and driving in 46 Runs look for Garrett to have another monster year. Coach Bill Seiple, “One of the best overall kids I’ve coached in 12 years. Outstanding athlete. He’s why we coach. Very high skills defensively and at the plate. Versatile, can play several positions. All the clichés apply.”.
