THS' Bragg signs with Brewton-Parker
By Brian Bowden

Thomson High School's Hunter Bragg, who graduated last month, signed to play baseball with the Brewton-Parker College Barons on June 12. "I'm relieved," said Bragg. "I just give all the glory to God because I know without him nothing would be possible."
Bragg, who was one of the aces of the Bulldog staff, is a left-handed pitcher who picks apart hitters with his accuracy and a ruthless change. However, he wasn't born with the ball control and skill he has now perfected. Bragg started working on that when he began playing ball at five or six years old. "I say when I was young [I knew I wanted to play baseball long term]," said Bragg. "I was the ace on my travel ball team up until I was 15." That dedication from a young age has earned him a spot at the next level.
Brewton-Parker, located in Mount Vernon and part of the Southern States Athletic Conference (SSAC) in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), hopes to add some strong mound presence with the addition of Bragg. "I think I'll be a good fit," said Bragg. "Like the coach told me down there, as long as I work hard and do what he says I can go wherever I want to go." Under six-year Head Coach Greg Mullins, the Barons finished 32-13 last season with a opening round spot in the NAIA Baseball National Championship.
