Mature well beyond his years, he carries himself like a true professional. He is talented, polished, and humble. His work ethic and preparation are admired by many. He will undoubtedly be an asset to any team he plays on.”

We were fortunate to have Brandon join us for our 2019 North Baseball trip to Germany, the Czech Republic & Austria. Brandon provided some versatility for us and played well defensively throughout our time overseas. He has soft hands, an accurate arm and can hit up and down the lineup. He uses the whole field and came up with some clutch hits throughout our time in Europe. He takes his baseball commitments seriously and his love for the game is evident with how he prepares himself and how he carries himself on the field

Brandon was well-liked by his teammates and had an amazing experience with us overseas last summer. He would be an asset to any team he plays on.
