Bracy, 43, came to W&M from Orlando, Fla., and left ranked No. 21 on the Tribe’s career scoring list (1,229 points), sixth on the career assist list, and second on the career steals list. He started all four years at guard and was named all-CAA in 1998.

“The things that we learned on that basketball court, those attributes helped me be successful in life,” Bracy said when was he was inducted to W&M’s athletics hall of fame in 2018. “And so,

I’m extremely grateful for the time here at William & Mary. It helped shape me into the man that I am today.”

After graduating, Bracy earned a master’s in business administra­tion at the University of Central Florida, and then became a school administra­tor and political consultant. He was elected to the Florida legislatur­e in 2012 and served four years as a state representa­tive before becoming a senator.
