Coach Brandon

 

Born and raised in Bossier City. Graduated from Airline in 2017 and was a member of the varsity baseball team from '15-'17. In 2017 was selected as the District 1-5A MVP and picked to the LBCA All-State First team. After Airline, went on to Murray State College in Tishomingo, Oklahoma to play two seasons of junior college baseball. Two years of juco ball helped pave a road to continue my career at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. Due to covid and a pre-season injury in 2020, I got two more years at UL. As a 5th year senior and in my 3rd year at Lafayette, we won the Sun Belt Conference tournament and proceeded to play in the Texas A&M regional. I had the honor of being named "Captain" of that '22 team. I graduated from UL with a degree in Kinesiology-Exercise Science. Coaching at Airline is in my family blood as my Papaw was the Head Coach of the Vikes for 12 years and my Dad also spent a couple years as an Assistant. This will be my first season as a coach and I am excited to continue my family legacy as well as doing everything I can to help bring a title to Airline High School.
