Braxton Burmiester has earned a top 10 ranking in the nation as a duel threat quarterback, but the La Jolla Country Day junior didn't land there without an immense amount of hard work and dedication.

"There is a reason he is a highly touted recruit and that's because of all the effort he has put in," said Head Coach Tyler Hales. "We got guys who just eat, breathe, and sleep football and Braxton is one of those guys."

Burmiester currently has 7 college offers, ranging from San Diego State to University of Washington. However, the 190 pound slinger verbally committed to the University of Arizona last November as a sophomore. The college interest continues to pile up and Burmiester says he tries to enjoy the experience.

"I mean its a little overwhelming but its also a great experience," said Burmiester. "I'm extremely blessed to be able to experience this and I just take it in as an opportunity to have fun and just be relaxed about it and have a good time with it."

Braxton Burmiester hopes to lead the Torreys to a second straight CIF championship this fall. Tonight they face the Coronado Islanders in the CIF quarterfinals.
