The Braham football defensive unit might be the strongest unit on the team next fall. Defensive coordinator Tyrone Smith says several younger players have been impressive this spring

The Brahmans are also switching to a 3-4 defense as they have less size, but more speed and agility on the defense this year. Linebacker Lindsey Major has made a bid to be a starter this year as he comes up from the JV. He says he’s soaking all the coaching in this spring

Sports Cast for May 11th:

Kysell Richardson is excited to get the chance to be the Brahman starting QB this spring. With Logan Etherton away at baseball, Richardson has stepped in and performed well. He says he’s pleased with how he’s performed. If Richardson plays QB, the team needs to find another wide receiver to take his place.  He led the team in receptions last year.

Coach Chris Branham says Richardson is a gifted receiver but was always a capable QB.

The Brahmans take on Vero Beach and Sebastian River tomorrow night in Sebastian in a jamboree.  Okeechobee will play Sebastian for a half and then Vero Beach for two quarters.

The state high school finals rodeo begins tonight at the Ag Civic Center.

The Okeechobee county schools track meet is also today at Okeechobee High School.
