Bryggman Siblings Playing Big for Capital Bruins

Posted: Updated:

At 6'4" Sam Bryggman is the tallest player on the Capital Bruins basketball team. At 6'2" Mary Bryggman is also the tallest player on the Capital Lady Bruins basketball team. So that brings up the question: what are these two eating?

"A lot of veggies," said Sam, "A lot of veggies, and ice cream. A lot of ice cream."

"Vegtables and ice cream, was that main diet of the Bryggman household?"

"Yeah pretty much," laughed Mary.

The Bryggman siblings have always had a passion for basketball. With their height growing up it was the best way for them to bond, as well as develop a friendly rivalry.

"There are some back yard "H-O-R-S-E" games and one on one games every once in a while," said Sam. "I win usually, but I've got a bit of an advantage."

"He has really good shots," said Mary. "I'll try to keep going until I win, but it never really happens."

This is Sam's senior year, but it's only Mary's sophomore year, which makes it all the more impressive that she's a starter for the Lady Bruins. And as she makes her adjustment to varsity, Sam has had plenty of advice for her.

"Scoring isn't everything," said Mary. "Just play as hard as you can. Like not have just the stats. The other stuff off of it helps."

"Just enjoy it while it lasts, and do everything you can to make sure you're playing as good as you can," said Sam.

Both the Bruin boys and girls will be contenders this March when it's time for state. But for their teams to make runs at the state title, both Sam and Mary Bryggman will need to be big contributors. Luckily, they've had years of practice of playing big against each other.
