Bracey Blanton: the man, the myth, the legend


Molly Grief

What comes to mind when you think of the name Bracey Blanton? Perhaps work ethic? Basketball IQ? Maybe even the best handles in the Midwest? Well, I’m here to tell you that he’s all of those things and more. Mr. Blanton is the starting varsity point guard for the Farmington Knights, and he deserves it. He puts in a lot of hard work on and off the court, whether its conditioning or sharpening his jumper, he’s always ready to put in the work. His ball handling skills are unmatched by anyone in the region, let alone the state. His basketball IQ is insanely high, which leads to him consistently making the right decision on the court. Whether it’s a perfectly placed pass or a dagger from the three point line, Bracey Blanton is your man. He scores 11 points per game, with 3 rebounds per game, 3 assists per game, and 2 steals per game. Coach Noble reports that Bracey is an incredible player with a bright future ahead of him. I agree with the coach, and so should you.
