Boys Athlete’s of the Month: Brayden Irwin

Brayden Irwin joined the swim team late into the year as a freshman. He showed great potential even starting late. Brayden has been a major contributor to the boys swim team for the last 3 years.  He has been one of the top 5 boys of the team for the past 2 years and he is one of the top 3 boys we have on the team this year. He is a great teammate for everyone. He is always pushing those around him to go faster and achieve more.  He is positive and works hard. That hard  work shows when he races.

This year Brayden has taken 1st place in 9 races. He has been a major contributor to our team’s success. Brayden’s races included the 50 freestyle, 200 IM, 100 freestyle, and the 100 butterfly.

I am glad that Brayden decided to join the swim team as a freshman and I have enjoyed the opportunity to coach such a great student and athlete.

Brayden is exactly what we want in a student athlete representing Bear River High! Not only is he successful in his sport, he is even more successful in the classroom as is shown by the rigorous schedule he has taken while maintaining an impressive 3.932 GPA. He also is very bright as is shown by his impressive 25 ACT.

A good athlete always does his best but a great athlete makes those around him better by his words and actions and that is what Brayden does! Brayden has already made a big impact on our swim team and will continue to do so as the year continues! I wish Brayden all the best on his senior swim season and throughout his life! Thanks for being the kind of person who represents our school so well!
