Almost one year after sustaining a severe head trauma, Baylor Bramble took part in his team’s high school senior night on Friday.
Bramble was honored with his senior teammates prior to Siegel’s game with Warren County at Ken Nolan Stadium in Murfreesboro.
Bramble suffered a severe head injury on Oct. 23, 2015 against Warren County in McMinnville. Bramble — then a junior defensive back for the Stars — was making his first career start on that night.
Bramble was the recipient of the Kaia Jergenson Courage Award at the inaugural Middle Tennessee Sports Awards held in May. Siegel’s football team received The Daily News Journal’s Travis Weber Courage Award because of how it handled Bramble’s injury and the death of teammate Mason Loupe.
Bramble has been visible around the program. He’s attended multiple home games.
His mother, father and two siblings escorted him through an arch of navy, white and silver balloons as he was announced prior to Friday’s game.
MAC officially open
Lipscomb Academy held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new 25,000-square foot training facility named after the late Glenn McCadams.
McCadams coached the Mustangs to three state championships. He died in 2013.
The McCadams Athletic Complex, which will be used by all sports at the school, is one of three of its kind in Middle Tennessee that are climate controlled.
The turf field in the building is named after the late Oakley Christian, who was a longtime Lipscomb supporter.
“We’re obviously using it within the Lipscomb Academy community and the Lipscomb University community,” Lipscomb Academy athletic director Mike Roller said. “But our dream is to share it with the entire community, our neighbors.”
Logan Sakarapanee scored on a 2-point conversion run with 22 seconds remaining to give the Mustangs a 43-42 win over Spring Hill on Friday.

Purdue commitment Antwuan Branch rushed for 307 yards and six scores in a Kenwood’s 49-27 win over Creek Wood in a Region 6-4A contest.
