Brandon has been playing volleyball as far back as he can remember. He was a multisport athlete in high school and made varsity all 3 years as a starting middle blocker (in Chicago, where they actually have men’s volleyball). He was offered scholarships to play volleyball in college, but turned them down in favor of a full-ride baseball scholarship. A few years ago, after a long break from volleyball, Brandon got back involved in coaching volleyball with some of the smaller school districts in the Olympia area. Brandon teaches Physical and Life Science at Chinook Middle School and loves working with young people. He is excited to enter his 2nd season coaching for a great club and a fantastic group of athletes!
