Brandon has exceeded his expectations for himself and amazes us every day with his successful senior year. The best word for him is character. Hes a gentle giant and has a big story to tell if you listen and can get him to talk to you.

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.
