Multiple Teams · Committed to Excellence — Connecting with Brayden Armstrong


Today we are going to check in with freshman Brayden Armstrong. Armstrong plays football and wrestles for Kent City.   This past fall, Armstrong played on the offensive and defensive lines for the junior varsity football team.  Over the winter, Armstrong helped Kent City’s wrestling team capture their fourth consecutive CSAA Silver championship, while having a great season individually as a freshman.

I miss my friends, and being able to walk within 6 feet of them.

4. What book are you reading? Would you recommend it to a friend? Why or Why not?
I am reading the Night Angel trilogy and yes I would recommend it to a friend. Mainly because its very descriptive and has really interesting lore.

5. Who in Kent City has made a positive impact on your life? What have they done for you?
Coach Kik has probably made the biggest impact on my life, since he’s taught me so much inside and outside of the classroom.

6. What is something you will never forget about the 2019 football/wrestling seasons?
It was my first year in high school sports so I don’t think I will forget it.
