Braden was born and raised in Sherwood, Arkansas. He has always had a passion for sports ever since he was a kid.
In high school baseball, he was a 4x all conference baseball player and also a 3x all state player. He was also a part of the All star team his senior year.
In high school wrestling, he was a 4x all state wrestler, 1x team state champion, 1x individual state champion (30-0), 1x outstanding wrestler individual state and 2x outstanding wrestler team state.
After he graduated high school from Central Arkansas Christian in 2017 he went on to play baseball at Harding University. At Harding he was redshirted his freshman year and had the opportunity to travel and play with baseball team in Nicaragua. At the end of the season he hung up his cleats.
Braden missed the game and came back a year later. He decided to play in the Cotton States summer college league in Mississippi in 2019 and picked back up like he had never left. He was on the all star team and led the league in innings 44, wins 6, era 1.41, and SO 46.
After his performance in the Cotton States Baseball League he was offered multiple scholarships to play but ultimately decided to go to Coahoma Community College in Mississippi. At Coahoma he became the assistant pitching coach where he led practices and worked with pitchers on technique. Sadly, the season ended early due to covid.
Braden went on to play in the Cotton States Baseball league the following summer and is currently at Coahoma Community College playing baseball while also attending Harding University.
Braden plans to graduate from Harding University in the fall of 2021 with a bachelors in business management and go on to get his MBA.
Braden is looking forward to working with kids of all ages to improve their performance in pitching. He has been going to Profromace for the past 7 years and wants to give back to the community that shaped him into the young man he is today.
“Proformance is my home and has been a major part of shaping me into the young man I am today. The impact that all of the instructors have had on me on and off the field will stick with me for years to come. Proformance cares about people and wants the best for them. They not only want you to be the best on the field they want you to be the best off the field.”
