On May 8, 1989, Brandon
Michael Acevedo was welcomed in to this world by his parents
Michael and Trudy. Brandon is the oldest of three children;
he has a little brother, Jordan, and a little sister, Allyson.
Brandon has participated in basketball and track for all four years of his high school career. One unique thing about Brandon, however, is that he is never afraid to try new things. In his junior year of high school, Brandon decided to go out for the football team and later proved himself as one of the best wide receivers in the area. He also decided to join the FFA in his later years of high school. This year, his class schedule consists of government, business marketing, advanced computer applications, single survival, vocational agriculture, p.e., health, speech, and industrial technology.
When he is not in school or out “ballin’ it up,” Brandon enjoys sitting down and watching a good movie; his favorites include Hardball, Love and Basketball, Friday Night Lights, Any Given Sunday, and Gridiron Gang. He also loves listening to Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw, T.I., and Lil Wayne. Brandon’s favorite color is silver, his favorite book is Malcolm X, his favorite food is steak, and his favorite T.V. show is Two-A-Days or Wild n’ Out. His favorite school subjects are vocational agriculture and p.e. His favorite high school memory was of that memorable night in junior year in which Brandon carried the track team to a victory by speeding past a West Lyon runner to win the race in the last ten meters of the men’s 4x400.
After high school, Brandon hopes to continue playing sports in college, while working toward becoming a physical trainer or a physical therapist. In ten years, he sees himself married with three kids, working full time, and making some serious cash.
If Brandon could spend one day with someone, he says that person would be Kobe Bryant because he thinks Kobe could teach him all of his moves. Brandon’s words of wisdom to the underclassmen are as follows: “Just because you’re a freshman, it doesn’t mean you can’t be yourself. You get four years to show everyone how good you are at something; don’t wait until the fourth year to show it.”
