Brandon I met this year on the wrestling team. He never gives up, he set his mind to doing it and he does it. He would fight harder if his opponent was getting the upper hand on him, when the match did not go his way he learned from and did better the next match. He is fighter and never quit attitude. Overall he is an exceptional young man.
I have know Brandon since he was a little kid in 4-H. He has always been dedicated to every thing he does. I have watched him grow into a wonderful young man and I am extremely proud of him
