Florida Swashbucklers Head Coach, Andy Bolger, said, “Brandon is one of the most athletic players in the state. He is a ball hawk, creating turnovers all over the field. His ability to throw checks and keep himself in position rarely getting beat makes him a great defender. However his attitude and desire to compete and are what really make him the player he is, Brandon is incredibly fun to watch and coach. Somebody is going to be very happy they gave him the opportunity at the college level.”
