It’s a good thing Brady Bramlett’s next scheduled start is Saturday.
The Ole Miss pitcher, second in the Rebels’ rotation, has had a busy Tuesday and Wednesday.
The No. 2 seed Rebels left today for the Los Angeles Regional where they will face 3 seed Maryland Friday and, perhaps, No. 1 overall seed UCLA with Bramlett on Saturday.
Yesterday and today Bramlett has been in Destin though not at the beach very much.
Tuesday he addressed faculty athletic reps on global issues – such as cost of attendance and more — that are being tracked by the national student-athlete advisory committee.
This morning he addressed that group as athletics directors and senior women’s administrators sat in.
Then he boarded a plane for LA.
“Nationally now he’s got a voice in this whole conversation about student-athlete welfare and well-being issues, concussion management, cost of attendance. He’s aware and involved in all this national legislation,” Ole Miss athletics director Ross Bjork said.
Bramlett reached the national committee through a gradual ascension.
“He’s the chair of the student-athlete advisory committee at Ole Miss. Then we nominated him to be the chair of the SEC student-athlete advisory committee so he oversees the entire group of 14 student-athlete for the SEC. The SEC was so impressed they nominated him to be on the national student-athlete advisory council, which he got elected to. He’s the vice chair of the national council,” Bjork explained.
“From a leadership perspective it’s neat to see Ole Miss represented nationally within the SEC. Brady’s an unbelievable student. He’s a double major, a singer, super talented and obviously he can pitch. He wants to go to law school, and he wants to be an AD down the road.”
