WISCONSIN RAPIDS – Breally Kautzer never has been part of a large class throughout her four-year varsity career with the Wisconsin Rapids girls basketball team.

She was one of only four freshmen in the program during the 2014-15 season. That number whittled down to two for her sophomore campaign. The class numbers continued to dwindle as Kautzer was the lone junior on the Raiders roster a year ago.

Kautzer remains the lone player in her graduating class as she prepares to wrap up her high school basketball career.

With the departure of seven seniors to graduation, the 5-foot-8 forward will be leaned upon heavily to provide leadership and serve as a voice of experience for a young Wisconsin Rapids squad.

She is coming off a season in which she averaged six points a game to rank fourth on the Raiders in scoring.

Kautzer recently took some time to answer some questions from USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin.

What do your friends/teammates call you? My teammates call me B.

What is something most people don’t know about you? One thing that most people don’t know about me is that my mom lives in Florida.

What is your most memorable sports achievement? My most memorable sports achievement was last year when we won the Christmas tournament in Superior for the first time in 12 years.

What is your most embarrassing sports memory? I have had my fair share of embarrassing sports memories but one that stands out the most was during summer league at D.C. Everest. Our team had just made a basket and without even thinking about it I ran and took the ball out of bounds, passed it in, and we all started heading to the other end of the court. The other team was even playing defense until someone finally realized that it was supposed to be their ball. I will never forget it, I tricked everyone without even realizing it.

What is your sports superstition or ritual? My sports ritual is that before every game I take a small nap and I must wear a certain type of socks.

Which teammate will you miss the most and why? I honestly don’t think I could pick just one person, I am truly going to miss the team as a whole and all of the fun we have together. We all work together really well and it’s going to be really sad when I have to leave them.

Who is your celebrity crush? My celebrity crush would have to be (NBA player) Sam Dekker.

What is your dream vacation? My dream vacation would be to travel to Costa Rica and go swimming with dolphins and adventure around the country.

What is your dream career? I am very uncertain on my future, but my dream would be to become a marketing director for a large company in a big city.
