Not A ‘Boggs’ Standard Signing For Bristol Flyers

Bristol Flyers have completed the signing of 6ft 6in American guard/forward Brandon Boggs.

The 24-year-old joins the club from Kongsberg Miners in Norway’s top flight, where he averaged 20.5 points and 6.6 rebounds per game.

“I’m very pleased to be joining Bristol Flyers for the 2016/17 BBL season.” Boggs told bristolflyers.co.uk.

“I checked out the Flyers online and it looks like there’s a great following in Bristol.

“Coach Kapoulas told me that he was looking for a versatile player to help the team win more games this year.

“He wants to make the play-offs again this season, but he doesn’t want us to just barely make it. He wants us to go in there with some momentum.”

Boggs is also familiar with both Daniel Edozie and Lovell Cook, after attending the Global Summer League in 2015.

“I played against them last summer in Las Vegas,” he revealed.

“I’ve kept in touch with Lovell through the summer and when he told me that he was coming to Bristol I was really excited to link up with him again.”

Boggs previously played at the University of Western Carolina in NCAA Division One, where he was the only player in school history to finish top ten in career steals and blocks.

In his senior year, Boggs averaged 12.5 points per game, whist shooting 45.5% from the field. He scored 1370 points during his four-year spell at Western Carolina and grabbed 503 career rebounds.

"Brandon is a very athletic player who has big time experience in NCAA Division One,” said Flyers head coach Andreas Kapoulas.

"He is a very active defender and his ability to play above the rim will really get fans off their seats.

“I believe he will fit in very well with our team and the style of basketball we want to play this season.

Boggs becomes the ninth player to commit to Bristol Flyers for 2016/17, joining Greg Streete, Roy Owen, Jordan Ranklin, Chris Bourne, Michael Vigor, Leslee Smith, Edozie and Cook.
