Perry County Central guard was a top candidate for Mr. Basketball in 2016
Perry County Central point guard Braxton Beverly, considered a top contender for Kentucky’s 2016 Mr. Basketball award, announced he will play his senior season at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va.
“The main reason I’m going is because it would give me a great opportunity to go and improve my game, and then also it will allow me to get ready for college from Day One, basketball- and school-wise,” Beverly said.
The 5-foot-11 Beverly racked up 2,558 points and 743 assists since joining the Perry County Central varsity team as a seventh-grader. He was a first-team member of The Courier-Journal’s All-State team last season after averaging 24.6 points and seven assists.
Beverly has scholarship offers from Western Kentucky, Northern Kentucky, Winthrop, Miami (Ohio), Samford, Marshall, Ball State, Cleveland State, Belmont, Kentucky Wesleyan and Lehigh.
