‘If you give it up, you’ll get it back’ It’s a mantra by which Brayden Sunho lives his life, on and off the soccer pitch.
The Palmyra senior has forged an outstanding individual career by putting teammates and the team ahead of himself.
This week, Sunho’s others-first mentality paid off in the form of a personal milestone. On Wednesday, Sunho recorded the 100th all-time point of his spectacular career, during the Cougars’ 9-0 triumph at Mifflin County.
Then two days later at Waynesboro, Sunho added five more goals and an assist to his total, during a 7-0 road triumph.
Not only is he one of the finest boys’ soccer players Palmyra and Lebanon County has ever produced, Sunho is also one of the top performers in central Pennsylvania, and beyond. While making everyone around him better, his value to the Cougars can’t be overstated.
Suno, who’s technically sound and proficient with either foot, has led Palmyra to a 14-2-1 overall mark this season. The Cougars, who advanced to last year’s District Three championship game, are currently situated second in the Class AAA power rankings.
