Canes North Showcase 2019 OF/C and Mills E Godwin HS (VA) product Braxton Downum recently committed to Virginia Wesleyan University Head Coach Chris Francis. During the Summer, Braxton played under the guidance of Canes North Showcase 2019 Head Coach Tyler Cox. Cox had this to say about Downum, “He is dedicated to the game and wanting to constantly learn how to master his craft to make the team better.” Downum showcased a strong arm from the outfield this summer by making a habit of throwing out runners trying to advance. Offensively, Downum displays good plate discipline and the ability to hit to all fields. We would like to congratulate the Downum family on his commitment to Virginia Wesleyan University.
