Brandon, when not on the field or studying, is busy volunteering in the community. He is very active in his church youth group. Brandon loves to travel and has been on mission trips to Papua, New Guinea three times and to Mexico. He has a kind heart and is others focused; evidenced by how he graciously gives of his time to mow lawns at the Magdalene House, a home for teenage mothers, and serve meals to the homeless at the Gospel Mission. This year he has also participated in events to raise funds for Cascade Christian’s Sparrow, including playing in the staff vs. student basketball game which raised over $13,000 for Cascade Christian’s Sparrow, Orick.
