Hockinson multi-sport standout Peyton Brammer will undergo a knee surgery that will sideline him for the remainder of his high school career, the senior told Scorebook Live on Sunday.
“This is the end of my high school athletic journey,” Brammer said. “I will work hard to be stronger than before.”
Brammer received the results of an MRI he underwent last week, which revealed multiple ligament tears. He is awaiting a second opinion, he said.
The news comes as another blow to No. 2 Hockinson (8-1) entering the postseason, and could serve to further even out the pack of 2A contenders.
He left the game early in the Hawks’ Week 8 win over Washougal after getting hit in the knee. Before his injury, he had collected 703 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns this season.
As a junior, Brammer was an Associated Press first team 2A all-state selection at defensive back and honorable mention pick at receiver. The 6-foot-5, 205-pound senior is an uncommitted three-star recruit, per recruiting site 247 Sports, the top receiver and cover corner for the two-time defending 2A state champion Hawks and also a standout basketball player.
He was considered among the top players returning across 2A for this upcoming hoops season.
He holds collegiate offers in both football and basketball, most recently a Big Sky football offer from Montana. Air Force, Idaho State, Northern Colorado and Lehigh are among his football offers. Division II Chaminade in Hawaii offered him in basketball.
The news marks the second consecutive year Brammer has been sidelined by a season-ending injury. As a junior, he suffered a broken foot during the Hawks’ postseason run to its second consecutive 2A state football championship, which also kept him out most of the ensuing basketball season.
He returned to the hardwood in late January and finished on a scoring tear. His final games included back-to-back 40 and 50-point outings.
