AS A PLAYER
Brandon began playing basketball in the 5th grade. A love and passion for the game began to develop as he watched Michael Jordan, his favorite player, dominate in the NBA. By 9th grade, he had made varsity and never looked back. A 4-year varsity starter, Brandon averaged over 22 points per game in his sophomore year, and became an All Conference Selection.
His family moved to North Carolina where he began his junior year at an entirely different school and conference. He played against perennial powerhouses such as Oak Hill Academy, and this is where he developed the grit and determination to play his best basketball. He then transferred to Wake Forest Rolesville High School, located in Wake Forest, NC. He led his team to conference tournament finals and finished his senior year averaging just over 15pts and 8 rebounds per game in the Cap 6 conference.
After graduating, Brandon moved to California to continue his basketball career. He took his talents to Cuesta College and became a 2-year starter. He led his team to first place in the conference and a state tournament appearance. After finishing at Cuesta, he transferred to Menlo College located in Atherton, CA where he was a 2-year starter. He led his team to a conference tournament championship and a national tournament appearance. Brandon led the way for his team, which set many school records, including a 9 game, win streak.

As a standout college player Brandon took his talents to the next level, and played overseas in Spain. He is also an Alumnus of world renowned Pete Newell’s Big Man Camp, where he played against some of the biggest and best players from around the world.

Brandon is the full package, he’s a friend, nutritionist, coach, entrepreneur, mentor and trainer. He is action driven and possesses a ton of passion for the game. He has had a big impact on my basketball life and personal life that has helped me out beyond what I could have imagined. This impact has helped me become a Professional Basketball Player who has played many places around the world such as Mexico, Kosovo, Australia, Italy, Tunisia, Singapore, and El Salvador. I have now played basketball on 5 different continents! I am proud to have trained with Brandon and Optimum Basketball, and I look forward to putting in more work this upcoming off-season!Laurence Donelson
