nger playing days. Bryce also credits his uncle as well for teaching and coaching alongside his dad and giving him pointers and tips as he was coming up. Bryce has lots of fond memories from his playing days with friends, family, and being coached by his father and Uncle. He cites that once as a youngster they lost a game to a talented Green Bay Sluggers, and the opportunity presented itself to play them the following day. Bryce was not a fan of the decision, and in fact was put on the mound to pitch in addition to his lack of interest to play this team again. He ended pitching a one hit, three inning gem, but credits the loss to fellow Senior Jake Cravillion for giving up a Grand Slam to a future Clemson commit. His fondest moment of this was the opposing coach after the game driving by just pointing at him and smiling as he drove away. The recognition may have been little and unseen to others, but affirmation from an opposing coach has stuck with Bryce to this day. This can remind us that simple acts of good can go a long way and mean a lot more than we know. So fast forward to 2020 to a young man with a big heart and a bright future. Bryce is heading to UW-Madison in the coming year to enroll in the Kinesiology program where he hopes one day to find himself on the training staff of a professional sports team. Helping others and being around sports will be a great fit for Bryce. In his leisure he also enjoys fishing, boating, and napping. The napping probably ensues after he downs a plate of his favorite ribs. Outside of baseball, Bryce is a decorated student have been named at one time the class president. Bryce thanks his dad for the past entirety of his life for being his role model. From coaching, teaching, to just supporting him. Bryce told us that when he looks down the road 30 years, he wants his life to mirror that of his father’s and everything his father has accomplished. Bryce, we’re going to miss the positive spirit, the joyful laugh, and the big heart you shared with us over these past years. Good Luck to you moving forward 21! Everyone, join me in congratulating Bryce Hanmann!
