Partnership Manager, Philadelphia
A self-proclaimed “student of the game,” and son of a high school football coach, Brandon gained an early appreciation and respect for the positive and transformative impact of sports. This unique outlook helped him pursue successful collegiate and professional careers playing the game he loved. He attended the University of California, Berkeley where he was a four-year starter on the defensive line for the Golden Bears. After his senior year, he joined the Philadelphia Eagles as a 4th round pick of the 1998 NFL draft. He remained a valued member of the Eagles’ starting defensive line for 6 years before being traded to the San Francisco 49ers in 2004, where he remained until the end of the season.
Returning to Philadelphia, he shifted his focus and dedicated his effort to creating positive culture change at the corporate level. Most recently serving as President of Speed Raceway, a family entertainment venue, he managed the Operations, Sales and Marketing teams. Brandon, his wife Amanda, and their four dogs reside in Lehigh County, PA. A love of world travel, sports, and animal advocacy keep him busy in his spare time. He proudly joins PCA with the hopes of making a difference in the lives of the next generation of athletes and people.
